City bound? The Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan announced an array of new exhibits opening the second half of this year, beginning with Kimono Style: The John C. Weber Collection. This exhibit chronicles the evolution of the kimono from the late 18th through the early 20th century.
Other new exhibitions include Water Memories, which delves into the crucial role of water to U.S. indigenous populations through works of art (opening June 23), and Chroma: Ancient Sculpture in Color, detailing research into ancient coloring methods used in artwork via reconstructions in color of Greek and Roman sculptures, presented alongside the original works (opening July 5).
Later this summer, the Bernd & Hiller Becher exhibition explores how these respected German artists forever influenced the trajectory of late 20th-century photography (opening July 15). The exhibition Michael Lin: Pentachrome will bring, for the first time, contemporary art to the Museum’s Great Hall escalator area (opening Aug. 15).
“The Met’s exhibition program is extraordinarily strong and varied, with everything from close examinations of the work of individual artists to large-scale thematic surveys,” said Max Hollein, Marina Kellen French director, The Met. “We are thrilled to invite audiences to the Museum to connect with deeply compelling and innovative presentations of art from the full breadth of times and cultures.”
The Met also invites visitors to enjoy music and drink specials as part of Friday and Saturday evening Date Night at The Met; a new, free bicycle valet program; and the opening of the Cantor Roof Garden, where sunset cocktails come with heady views of Central Park.
