Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity just opened. Before you enter, there is a quote from Manet that I will paraphrase. He said that when painting women (my addition...with their clothes on) they should be dressed in the most up-to-date fashion. Seriously, when the Met takes costumes out of the closet and displays them with relevant art, the results are always, fun, educational and exciting.
I said to a guard that this exhibit will draw great crowds when word gets out. She said it will be really crazy when both this exhibit and the upcoming Punk exhibit are on together and near each other in May.
While looking for links, I discovered the Street exhibit that is opening tomorrow. Must see it soon. Met membership has its rewards.
If you are visiting, remember that the Met opens at 9:30. That is my favorite time to visit.
