Opened in 1924, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's American Wing is like a museum within a museum, comprising over 20,000 works of art, ranging from the colonial to early-modern period. We will look at painting, sculpture, works on paper, decorative arts, historical interiors, and architectural pieces. We will also investigate The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art, the Met's fascinating open-storage area containing furniture, textiles, ceramics, glass, silver, metalwork, jewelry, basketry, and embroidery. Come enjoy a virtual tour with two trained guides who know this museum well.
