Our day will begin with a docent-guided tour of Artistic Encounters with Indigenous America and Art of Native America: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection. These exhibitions will explore how European and American artists represented Indigenous North Americans in drawings, prints, watercolors, photographs, and popular ephemera from the seventeenth to the early twentieth century. Through forty-five examples from The Met collection, the display will trace the evolution of this complex imagery over time, highlighting the ways in which it contributed to the creation and dissemination of myths and misconceptions about Native peoples, often justifying their dispossession, cultural destruction, and genocide. From formulaic depictions of so-called savage warriors and Indian princesses to romanticized representations of a "vanishing race," these works reveal the pervasive influence of Indigenous America on the Euro-American imagination.
Then we will dine in the MET cafeteria with a lunch that includes your choice of Entrée options: Salad Bar, Sandwich, Pasta, Grill, or Main Course stations; Dessert; Soft Drink or Coffee.
After lunch, you will be free to explore the entire museum at your own pace. Enjoy the superb, extensive permanent collection or explore one or more of the other special exhibitions: Jewelry: The Body Transformed; Epic Abstraction; Monumental Journey: The Daguerreotypes of Girault de Prangey; The Tale of Genjii Japanese Classic Illuminated; Camp: Notes on Fashion; Seeing the Divine: Pahari Painting of North India; The Arts of London Firearms.
