11:40New Galleries for Islamic Art of Metropolitan Museum
Attendance at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s acclaimed New
Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, and
Later South Asia topped the one-million mark on January 18, 2013.
In the 14
months since their grand reopening on November 1, 2011, the galleries have
attracted an average of 2,550 people per day.
1,200 works from the renowned collection of the Museum’s Department of
Islamic Art—one of the most comprehensive gatherings of this material in the
world—are on view in the completely renovated, expanded, and reinstalled
suite of 15 galleries, a project that took eight years to complete. The
organization of the galleries by geographical area emphasizes the rich
diversity of the Islamic world, over a span of 1,300 years, by underscoring
the many distinct cultures within the fold.
