Metropolitan Museum of Art

Here’s an old slide I pulled as I was scanning old slides to digital files. It’s not substantially different from today. Maybe the clothing has changed a bit. Are you looking? I mean looking at the picture of the building. Then, of course, you saw the stones piled atop the columns. If you didn’t already know this, now you do. Huh? Well, when they built the building, they planned on statuary to be commissioned and installed. They couldn’t decide on who or what to do. So to this day the blocks are there to hold the space. Hey they’re still building St John’s Cathedral uptown. And they don’t expect to finish the cathedral for another one hundred years. Some things are priorities and others are not. But I think you could do better than blocks on an art museum?
