The Metropolitan Museum of Art is New York City’s encyclopedia of art. It covers 5,000 years of human history.
It’s an art museum, but more a museum of human culture. The Met is one of the places in New York City where you can see yourself, and also see how much of yourself is derived from “others.” It’s a place where you can see that we are one.

Met Galleries with Latin Art
Greek and Roman Art
The Greek and Roman Art gallery contains art from Italy and from the height of the Roman expansion around the Mediterranean. I always thought the Romans copied Greek culture. Actually, they absorbed the culture of Greek settlers in the shoe of Italy and Sicily. Migration can be a very good thing.
Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas
The Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas gallery displays art by Native Americans.
Modern And Contemporary Art
The Modern and Contemporary Art gallery displays masterworks from when Paris was the global center of art.
European Sculpture and Decorative Arts
The European Sculpture and Decorative Arts gallery displays large-scale European sculptures and some decorative arts from Latin America.
Robert Lehman Collection
The Robert Lehman Collection contains European art and decorative objects including Italian Maiolica glass.
The Medieval Art gallery surveys European art from the fall of Rome to the Renaissance.
Arms and Armor
The Arms and Armor gallery displays European armor.

August 2020 is the first time The Met has commissioned its entrance banners.
Yoko Ono has always been a minimalist poet. Ono offers “Pu,” the taoist uncarved block that represents both infinite possibility and the containment of infinity. That’s a clever description of The Met Museum.
The artist gives us two words to express her dream. Of course, it is “Dream Together.”
There is no better place in the world than New York City to dream together.
One of the Glories of Fifth Avenue
“The Met” was founded in 1870 and moved to its main location in Central Park in 1880. The Met Fifth Avenue has a Beaux-Arts facade in front of over two million square feet of museum.
If you ride down Fifth Avenue on a summer night, The Met will be one of the scenes that stays in your mind. It’s like a golden nugget sticking right out of Central Park.
