New York's Night Out is expanding this summer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art with the addition of thematic programming on June 24 and July 22 at The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters, and extended evening hours at The Met Cloisters through Labor Day.
"We're delighted to host MetFridays this summer at all three of our locations—The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Cloisters, and The Met Breuer," said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the Museum. "Come and enjoy our iconic settings, great exhibitions, and a fantastic range of programs. It is the perfect way to start a summer weekend."
On June 24, The Met will offer music, poetry readings, and discussion on the theme of MetFridays: Pride at the Fifth Avenue location, while the Cloisters location will host a French wine tasting with a master sommelier. On July 22, a concert will highlight MetFridays: Extreme Measures at The Met Fifth Avenue. That same evening at The Met Cloisters, the quartet Jazz and Honey will perform music from the 1930s, the decade in which The Cloisters was inaugurated.
Each of the three Met locations will have special MetFridays offerings this summer.
