The met

There are two complementary new photography exhibits at The Met that are worth checking out.
The pieces are organized into twelve sections based on emotional qualities: Nostalgia, Belonging, Delight, Joy, Wonder, Affinity, Confidence, Strength, Desire, Assurance, Comfort, and Consciousness.
Police confirmed that an "unattended bag" was reported around 2 p.m. on Monday at 81st Street and Fifth Avenue, just outside the entrance to the museum.
The exhibit, which opened this week, would have provided the theme of the 2020 Met Gala.
This year’s pandemic-delayed Roof Garden Commission will be on view through December 7th.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the city's first museums to reopen after an extended closure throughout the pandemic.
The museum will initially be open five days a week, from Thursday through Monday, and at 25% capacity.
The Met is planning to reopen on August 29th with new social distancing guidelines in place, and the New-York Historical Society will have an outdoor exhibit starting August 14th.
If the Met is able to reopen in August or September, the days and hours the museum is open will be reduced, and tours, talks, concerts, and events will be canceled for the rest of 2020.
One of the heads of The Met said layoffs were likely inevitable: “We’re going to have to do it like everybody is going to have to do it. It’s a very disheartening thing.”
In addition, all Metropolitan Opera performances and all events at Carnegie Hall have been canceled through March 31st.
The 150 marvels now on display at The Met are some of the fruits of a continent-wide competition to compile the coolest 'Kunstkammern.'
