The Birthday present

The Birthday present
In spring 2019, The Met is in its glory – the coffers are full, visitor numbers are up and staff is preparing to mark the museum’s 150th anniversary. The first episode of Inside The Met goes behind closed doors to reveal how the museum functions, venturing above and below the public galleries for a close-up look at the work of curators, conservators and executives. Construction of “Making The Met,” an exhibit that explores the evolution of the institution, is well underway, as is the next great show from the Costume Institute, “Camp.” In addition, The Met unveils an incredible series of sculptures by Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu in the museum’s formerly empty façade niches.
