Back by popular demand! Spend your lunch hour on another tour of one of the US' pre-eminent museums.  This is another in our virtual museum tour series. The tour is capped at 40 participants, so please sign up early.

We will revisit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, on a virtual tour that highlights the diversity and breadth of the Museum’s Asian Art collection.  Explore a selection of ancient and modern works, from sculpted Buddhas to ceramics and painted handscrolls and screens, encompassing the diverse cultures and religions of Asia.   

Our guide, Alix Devine, has been a docent at The Metropolitan Museum of Art since 1974, specializing in Chinese and Japanese art. She has done four trips to China as The Met’s art lecturer.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art presents over 5,000 years of art from around the world for everyone to experience and enjoy. The Museum lives in two iconic sites in New York City—The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters. Since its founding in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive in the Museum's galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures.

Tickets are $10 per person ($5 for current Stanford students and young alumni classes 2010 or later), to cover the expense of the tour.  

 

Note: Participants will receive the virtual tour link by email the day before the event.  The Met delivers their tours using a Microsoft Teams link, very similar to a Zoom link.  Attendees do not need a Teams account or any app to participate if accessing Teams from a Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browser.  If using mobile device (phone or tablet) or other browser, downloading the Teams app ahead of time is recommended.
