The opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new space is a wonderful event. The Met has done this just right!

OVERVIEW I  looks at the building by Marcel Breuer, and the inaugural exhibition, Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible. 

The great modernist building designed by Marcel Breuer used to house the Whitney Museum of American Art but the Whitney left the Breuer building, on Madison Avenue and 75th Street, and moved to a new building downtown.  Now the Metropolitan Museum of Art has taken over the Breuer building to create its own new museum space for modern and contemporary art — and as far as I can see, they’ve done everything with great intelligence and dedication – and created a great contribution to cultural life.
