Introducing “Griffins, Jr”! We’re delighted to offer a streamlined version of “Griffins, Goblets, and Gold,” our popular wizarding tour in the Metropolitan Museum, for kids ages 5-7. It’s a great way to introduce younger kids to the Met, because it’s chock full of games, activities, and, you know, cool wizarding stuff, all in an hour. (And if you’re on your lunch hour or just have a short attention span, you’re welcome, too.) ⚡️⚡️⚡️
The mural for the Smithsonian @americanartmuseum is titled #loveitforward - there are 3 sections of the mural that you can interact with. This section is a giant floral heart. Always helpful when your gorgeous friends come to support and pose with the art 👍🏼❤️🙌🏻 .
L’shana tova! #RoshHashanah , the celebration of the Jewish New Year, began this week. 🔔📜🔔 Rimonim, or Torah finials, such as these, grace the tops of many Torah scrolls. Traditionally, those decorated with bells, such as this pair of #rimonim , signaled to members of a congregation that the sacred scroll was removed from its ark to be read as part of a holiday or Sabbath service. 🍎 In Hebrew, rimonim actually means "pomegranate," a fruit often eaten during the Jewish New Year to signify the wish for an abundance of blessings for the coming year as numerous as the pomegranate’s seeds. ✨These rare rimonim, made by the colonial New York silversmith Myer Myers and on display in our Roy J. Zuckerberg Hall of American Silver on our fourth floor, are one of only five surviving pairs made by the renowned artisan. And, they're not just for display! 👉🕍 Next week they will leave their place behind glass and go back to Congregation Shearith Israel, the first synagogue founded in North America (of which Myer Myers was an active member), for Yom Kippur. #Lshanatova#JewishhistoryisAmericanhistory#becausehistorymatters
M and I went to the Luce Center at the Smithsonian American Art Museum today - because Albrecht Bierstadt painted Yosemite Valley several times with divergent levels of geophysical realism, and they have two of his efforts on the wall. Pre-trip research.
“Take the Bobby Riggs match, for instance. To beat a fifty-nine-year-old guy was no thrill for me. The thrill was exposing a lot of new people to tennis. But the most important thing about the match was that women liked themselves better that day.” Billie Jean King #feminism#womeninsports#lucecenter Excerpt From “Particular Passions: Billie Jean King” @iBooks.
