Thomas Hart Benton at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Our founder, Caroline Pratt, comes to life in a wonderful (and overdue!) exhibit of Thomas Hart Benton’s groundbreaking mural “America Today,” newly installed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Our XIIsS have already visited, and were proud to see Caroline learning from children in the panel, “City Activities with Dance Hall.”
At the time, critics lauded the series of ten panels as typifying a “New Era” of New York and celebrating the Progressive Era of which Caroline was firmly a part. You can read a review of the exhibit in the New York Times. The installation will run through April 19, 2015.
