Young Members Party 2009

I had a little fun with photoshop on a couple of these

Visiting the Met when it is closed is a unique experience in itself, but pair that with "summer chic" attire, music, a three-hour open bar, and sunset on the roof and you've got yourself a party. Last night's Young Members Party attracted hundreds of 21 to 35 year-olds dressed in their sharpest summer attire.

My roommate, Ryan, and I marched up the steps into the great hall, where he remarked that "the Met makes even the Natural History Museum seem small" (I smirked with pride). As you can imagine, I had a great time — I'd never seen the Petrie Court that packed, Maelstrom looked great lit up with blue and purple lights, AND we were lucky enough to have a gorgeous sunset as our backdrop for the beginning of the party.


  1. It sounds fun. Too bad my membership expired and I couldn't go. Good wine and snacks too?

  2. That looks like it was so much fun!

  3. I had a great time at the party - I'm working on a much-less-ambitious 50 gallery visits over at Maybe I could join you on one of your visits later in the week? Would love to see your favourites.
