The Nelson A. Rockefeller vision: in Pursuit of the Best in the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas
The Metropolitan's holdings of art from sub-Saharan Africa, the Pacific Islands, and the Americas are today regarded as canonical. They constitute such an integral part of the institution that few realize their inclusion is the result of the vision and sustained efforts of a uniquely influential figure in both American political life and the New York art scene: Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller (1908–1979). The scion of one of the nation's most significant philanthropic families, Rockefeller served as vice president from 1974 to 1977 under Gerald R. Ford and was elected to four consecutive terms as governor of the State of New York between 1959 and 1973.
Sixty years after the founding of the Museum of Primitive Art, the arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas occupy a place of prominence at the Metropolitan, fulfilling Rockefeller's vision.
Jewels by JAR. View 400 works by JAR: JAR is one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the 20th century, who works in Paris.
This exhibition features more than four hundred works by one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the twentieth century, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR.
Born in New York and educated at Harvard, Rosenthal moved to Paris soon after his graduation in 1966 and began to experiment with jewelry making. JAR opened in 1978 on the Place Vendôme—the same space he occupies today. Very early in his career, Rosenthal revealed his superb sense of color, whether in the hue of an exotic violet sapphire, the shimmer of topaz and ruby, or the simple clarity of a perfect diamond. His works quickly became known for their unique design, the quality of their stones, and their remarkable craftsmanship, but above all for their fearless beauty. He is known for his pavé technique—the setting of small stones so close together that they appear as a continuous surface of jewels—and uses subtle gradations of color to create a painterly effect.
Mingle with others and ejoy refreshments at this elegant event. Event is similar to the Post-Pride Met Event, but with a Women's Focus. Note this is an event for Women's History Month, and all women (LBT and straight) are invited, as are men who want to celebrate Women's History Month.
