Do swipe left to see a fun video of us pulling into the MET office. I have no idea why I took this video (perhaps because of the song, New York by Cat Power, that was playing on the radio) but for some reason I really like watching it on a loop! 🔊

I picked up a #newtome book at @savers_thrift this weekend, and it's fabulous! I love #artbooks but they're typically too expensive for me to ponder purchasing new. This is a delightful and fanciful subject to focus on, too - it's lovely to view closeups of cat artwork from so many cultures over so many eras, and how artists interrupted our beloved feline four-legged friends... I highly recommend it if you see it out in the wild! #thriftstore #thriftshop #cats #thriftstorefinds #themet #metropolitanmuseumofart

One of Monet's beauties at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. I made a dash through visit today because I got into the city in late afternoon.  Worth it! #newyorkcity #nyc #metropolitanmuseumofart #museum #monet #claudemonet #sunflowers #impressionism #nyctrip #favoritemuseum #newyorknewyork

FINALLY posting this one even though I've finished the book well over two weeks ago and took this first picture on my birthday nearly a month ago. 1984 is simply stated my favorite novel, and no words seemed right to convey the whole background story SO I'll try and keep this succinct!

First off, a massive thank you to @coffeeandaclassic for still having 1984 boxes available in your Etsy shop!! The beanie and pint glass are amazing 😍👌 !! The whole box was beautifully organized and I could not be happier with it. 
Second, the #criterion release of 1984 is stupendous and well worth viewing and buying. @eric___charles and team did a masterful job restoring it to its totalitarian glory!

Third, yes I did get a 1984 tattoo on my foot. Done wonderfully by @christianmasot!  Highly recommend him if you are looking to get work done in the Jersey City area. Sorry the pic is crappy but it is still healing.

Finally, the actual book pic was taken at #metropolitanmuseumofart on my birthday. May seem an odd place to read, but they have all these cool places that are perfect for relaxing and taking in the art work. Plus, it was weirdly fitting to read about a government that destroys the past when you are in a place that is all about the past. 
If you haven't read this one, I cannot recommend or nag you enough to. This is one of those books that is terrifyingly relevant. 
Thanks for reading my ramble if you got this far!! #igreads #orwell #1984 #booktattoo #bookphotography #coffeandclassics #bookworm #booksofinstagram

Watching her face light up and her asking me questions about diff cultures and artifacts was by far the best one on one time we ever had! We both learned a lot, we laughed a lot and she held my hand or my arm the whole day it was a beautiful beautiful thing! I'm so happy that we get to do things like this. For all the messed up things we went through as a family over the years I'm grateful God has allowed us to expierence so much greatness in the midst of our struggles! 🙏❤🙏❤🙏❤ #MetropolitanMuseumOfArt #718 #manhatten #DaddysGirl #Princess #FatherFirst #blessed #grateful #Amarilis #570

I've not posted in awhile, so here are a few pics from my visit to the Met (@metmuseum) earlier this summer. The Roof Garden is one of the best views in the city, not only for the skyline, but the Roof Garden Commission. Currently on exhibit is Alicja Kwade's ParaPivot (@alicjakwade). I think the ideas of science, time, and space that it evokes work wonderfully with the rooftop location and NYC as the backdrop. The fact that you can enjoy a glass of bubbles while viewing is an added bonus! Check it out through October 27!

We are lovers, curators, and educators of sneakers, fashion, art, and culture. Every week we feature a staff pick of something we love outside of our normal stream of commerce.⁣⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Several RuleofNext Team Members were onsite the Grand Opening of the District Art Gallery-”a sophisticated ,modern environment (that) provides art enthusiasts, established and new collectors, decorators and browsers with an unrivaled visual art experience. An evening to remember, hundreds gathered in celebration to the Van Aken District's new addition to the community, and were delightfully welcomed with food, music, drink and a sleek, modernistic atmosphere pleasantly housed within high ceilings snd elegantly textured floors. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The District Art Gallery is home to both national and international art exhibits, and represents emerging, established and mid-career level artists- in addition to providing consultation, installation, framing and art curation services. Fostering relationships between art dealers and buyer, engaging through the local community through partnership opportunities and education, are among the initiatives the District Art Gallery has sought out to accomplish. Committed to bringing world renown art and artists with providing opportunities for emerging artists, the District Art Gallery brings hope, culture and possibility to the community for what we hope to be, for a very long time,⁠⠀

Arrived home from a wonderful week on the Cape and Nantucket and plunged right into a beautiful day at the @metmuseum yesterday with my college bestie who flew in on the red-eye from SF just to spend one day with Paloma and me🥰🥰🥰
🌞
The city was 95 degrees (but felt like 103 according to weather reports), and it felt completely deserted. The Met was crowded as expected in summertime, but due to our stroller we got to skip waiting in line!🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
👶🏻
It was Paloma’s first visit to the Met outside my belly - last time we went was a few weeks before my due date🤰🏻She enjoyed crawling all around the galleries, making friends with many strangers and occasionally screaming as loudly as possibly in large rooms filled with priceless paintings and treasures.
💛
Today it is more of the same weather, so the family is having a hygge afternoon snuggled in our bed taking a communal nap while the AC is blasting cold air.😌

Happy 533rd birthday to Andrea del Sarto! This drawing of Julius Caesar is a study for the main figure in his monumental fresco, The Tribute Presented to Julius Caesar in Egypt, painted in 1521. Commissioned by Pope Leo X and Cardinal Giulio de' Medici, the fresco cemented Sarto's position as the leading painter in Florence. The drawing, executed in Sarto's favorite medium of red chalk, offers a precise portrait of Julius Caesar, based on the design of marble busts or coins representing the Roman emperor that were widely known during the Renaissance 🖍⠀

Richard Morris Hunt, the famed American architect behind the Biltmore Estate, the pedestal for the Statue of Liberty, and the facade, entrance, and main stairway of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (to name only a few highlights) was also a founder of @aianational.
.
As we look forward to kicking off our fall season with an analytical drawing course at the Richard Morris Hunt Memorial in New York, we thought we’d take a moment to admire a quirk and one of the city’s notably unfinished details: the massive stone blocks that mark the @metmuseum’s otherwise highly finished facade. Sitting where monumental sculptures were intended to go, they were—plainly—never sculpted.

We’ve just hung the spectacular bequest of Jayne Wrightsman’s Venetian paintings and it is something to see and enjoy.  At the end of the skylight project and a larger gallery, the Met’s unsurpassed collection of Venetian paintings will be seen in full.  Even now, this is a show stopper. #newyork #metropolitanmuseumofart #canaletto #tiepolo #guardi #venice

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with this engraving by Claude Mellan, who was commissioned to render the moon as precisely as possible in 1635. Using a telescope provided by Galileo, Mellan created engravings of the moon in three different phases. The prints remained unsurpassed in accuracy until the 19th century, when improvements to telescopes made it possible to see greater detail 🔭⠀
⠀
Be sure to see these prints on view in Apollo’s Muse: The Moon in the Age of Photography, on view in Gallery 691 through September 22nd 🌗🌕🌔⠀
