Jewelry: The Body Transformed

Monday, November 12–Sunday, February 24
10:00 am–6:00 pm
Metropolitan Museum Of Art
1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street
Upper East Side

Pay-what-you-wish, suggested $25, free/ages 12 & under

Lots of pretty shiny kid-magnets among a dazzling array of headdresses and ear ornaments, brooches and belts, necklaces and rings shown along with sculptures, paintings, prints, and photographs that enrich and amplify the many stories of transformation that jewelry tells.


* Inside the museum, the American Wing Cafe has soups, salads, sandwiches and a gorgeous view of Central Park. 'the cafeteria' in the basement is less scenic but has more selection - pasta, sushi, hot entrees, a frozen yogurt sundae bar and kids' meals that come in cardboard taxis. The Roof Garden has some snacks (and you can bring your own and nosh with a view). Or head to Shake Shack (86th between Lexington & Third) or the chill Pizza Beach (81st & Third). Pick up one of the city's best black-and-white cookies at William Greenberg (1100 Madison between 82nd & 83rd).
