Metropolitan Museum of Art

Metropolitan Museum of Art


Founded in 1870 by members of New York’s Union League Club, the Metropolitan Museum of Art moved into a building designed by Calvert Vaux (who, with Frederick Law Olmsted, designed Central Park) in 1880. The southwest wing and façade were built in 1888. The Fifth Avenue side wings were completed in 1906. Sculptural decoration has never been finished.

One of the museum’s most important benefactors was J.P. Morgan, who as president (1904-13) continued to expand the collections and the building. In 1929 the museum acquired an outstanding collection of French impressionist paintings from Louisine Havermyer.

Today, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest and most comprehensive art museum in the western hemisphere. It houses more than three million works of art, hundreds of them famous masterpieces, ranging from ancient to modern. Its collection of Egyptian art is second only to the one in Cairo.

Departments include: the American Decorative Arts, American Paintings and Sculpture, Ancient Near Eastern Art, Arms and Armor, Arts of Africa, 220px-Metropolitan_museum_of_art_2Oceania, and the Americas, Asian Art, The Cloisters, The Costume Institute, Drawings and Prints, Egyptian Art, European Paintings, European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, Greek and Roman Art, Islamic Art, The Robert Lehman Collection, The Libraries, Medieval Art, Modern Art, Musical Instruments, Photographs, and Antonio Ratti Textile Center.

In addition to the Metropolitan Museum’s collection, visitors can enjoy special exhibitions, gallery talks, lectures, and other educational programs offered daily at the museum.

Rockefeller Center


Rockefeller Center History:

After the stock market crash of 1929, John D. Rockefeller Jr. abandoned plans to build a new opera house in favor of a group of office towers, elegant shops, and theaters, surrounding a sunken plaza that becomes an outdoor restaurant in summer and an ice skating rink in winter. He commissioned many murals and works of sculpture including a massive figure of Atlas at the entrance to 630 Fifth Ave and the majestic Prometheus statue delivering fire to mankind. A restaurant called the Rainbow Room opened in 1934 and became one of the most glamorous in the city.

Radio City Music Hall, the largest and most famous theater in the United States opened in 1932 with an opulent art deco interior that has 5874 seats. The theater offered programs combining feature films with stage shows, a format that remained popular for almost 50 years. The best-known entertainers associated with Radio City Music Hall are the Rockettes, a team of 36 long-legged dancers who first appeared in 1933 and soon became synonymous with the theater’s reputation as the “Showplace of the Nation.”
