The Met is the temple where I worship. To have all those millennia stretch out before you is the most serene feeling.
I try to return to the place where my career began every few months and losing oneself in the Department of European Paintings is both inspiring and restorative.
It is my favorite museum in the world, and I go there religiously to see new shows and spend time with my favorite art.
New York City’s art scene is unparalleled, and the Met is the anchor. Presenting over 5,000 years of significant works of art spanning different cultures and time periods from around the world, the Met is not only one of the world’s largest museums—it’s also one of the finest.
The Metropolitan Museum is a New York City staple and one of the largest museums in the world. The Met Gala—and coordinating exhibits at the Costume Institute—is a yearly ritual in my home.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art presents over 5,000 years of art from around the world for everyone to experience and enjoy. The Museum lives in two iconic sites in New York City—The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters. Millions of people also take part in The Met experience online. Since its founding in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive in the Museum's galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures.
