Did you know that this part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art used to be located on Wall Street? On Saturday November 9th, from 2:30-3:30pm, we’ll be doing an exclusive architecture and design tour for Untapped Cities readers of the Engelhard Court. Inside this court and in nearby period rooms are structural works by Stanford White, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan and Louis Comfort Tiffany. We’ll head to the Great Hall Balcony Bar after the tour to enjoy a glass of wine amidst a rare view of the museum’s majestic lobby. Space is limited as we want to keep this event small, an experience you can’t usually get on a Met Museum tour!
Docent Lee Miller will be giving the tour. She has been an Education Volunteer at the Metropolitan Museum for more than 25 years. She specializes in the American Wing and has a particular interest in decorative arts and architectural elements in the collection.
