2. The Opening of The Met Breuer
In 1963, Marcel Breuer received the commission to build the Whitney Museum of American Art with the intension of creating “a solid, permanent sanctuary for the art within.” Mr. Breuer would be pleased to see that not only will his vision not endure with the Metropolitan Museum of Art taking residence in the building, but that the new collection will also bear his name.
With much anticipation, The Met Breuer will open to the public on March 18, providing additional space for the Met in which they can include performances, residencies, educational initiatives and more exhibitions and artist commissions.
The new Met Breuer is located at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street. Check out our sneak preview photos inside the new Met Breuer.
