As Kristen and Ethan wrote last week, the Teen Advisory Group spent its last meeting of the summer wandering around the Museum with cameras. As we explored the building, we learned that the Met provides a space in which people can both socialize with others and meditate by themselves. Our photographs show people who discovered really cool spots at the Met to hang out with friends or to spend time on their own.
The Met is a place to improve social relationships while learning about and interacting with fantastic art. Looking at works of art provides a wonderful starting point to learn about your companions, and it stimulates engaging discussion. Garrett's photograph below shows friends spending time together near the Temple of Dendur.
The Met is full of people who want to socialize as they learn about various artists. But there are also spaces in the Met that offer a quiet and calm environment, which allows people to relax. Evelin's photograph below captures a person looking out a window, seemingly lost in thought. Quiet locations like this one allow visitors to let their minds wander.
