Presented in collaboration with the Fairfield University Art Museum

The Metropolitan Museum of Art the Met has played an important role in the preservation and promotion of creativity of American culture during its 150 years, sharing over 5,000 years of art and artifacts from around the word with its visitors.

This year marks The Met's 150th anniversary, an occasion that will be commemorated with a wide range of activities throughout the year. Curator Randall Griffey will recount this rich story, full of surprising moments of progressive foresight, on the one hand, and periods of retrenchment from modernism, on the other.

Randall Griffey is currently the Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Prior to the Metropolitan, Griffey held curatorial positions at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (1999 – 2008) and the Mead Art Museum, Amherst College (2008 – 2012).
