On View at Metropolitan Museum Through August 15

WHAT The immensly popular exhibition Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art—which has already attracted more than 550,000 visitors and was recently extended through August 15—is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the remarkable array of works by Pablo Picasso in the Metropolitan's collection. Featuring 300 works by Picasso, this exhibition is an unprecedented opportunity to see one of the most important collections in the world of the artist's work. It reveals the Museum's complete holdings of the artist's paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics—never before seen in their entirety—as well as an extensive selection of prints.

American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity is the first Costume Institute exhibition drawn from the newly established Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Met. The exhibition explores developing perceptions of the modern American woman from the 1890s to the 1940s, and how they have affected the way American women are seen today.  Focusing on archetypes of American femininity through dress, the exhibition reveals how the American woman initiated style revolutions that mirrored her social, political, and sartorial emancipation.
