On Monday we visited the Metropolitan museum of Art. There are two current exhibitions that I went to see. The first is a collection of 150 pieces designed by Karl Lagerfeld, who died in 2019. The exhibition is meant to highlight his complex creative process and the resulting fluid designs. Here are my favorites:
The second exhibit focuses on Van Gogh’s distinct way of viewing trees. Here are some examples: The Starry Night, A Walk At Twilight, Farmhouse Among Olive Trees, and Country Road in Provence By Night.
When we finished looking at the exhibits, it was time for lunch. On hot and humid days, I like to eat light. The sushi listed on the American Wing Cafe’s menu sounded perfect.
When we got to the cafe, it was somewhat disappointing to find out that it was prepackaged sushi. On the plus side, the salmon and avocado in my roll tasted very fresh (We did see it being delivered.). And the rice had just the right vinegary zing to it. It turned out to be a terrific light lunch.
Afterwards, we went upstairs to check out the museum’s roof garden. There was a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline. In fact, it looked to me somewhat like a Van Gogh painting.
