Heavenly Bodies

I saw on Instagram that there’s an exhibit at the Met on Catholic imagery and fashion, which sounds pretty magical to me. It reminded me of how much I love the Met. Actually I remembered today how, about fifteen years ago, when I was teaching a class on the United Nations at East Stroudsburg University, I took my students on a field trip to the UN. After about an hour or so there, I decided we all needed to go visit the Met, and so the bus driver we’d hired for the day drove us uptown and we had a lovely afternoon looking at art. It was definitely a great thing to do for my students. But it also shows you what my priorities were, even then.
