Jerry Garcia’s famed “Wolf” guitar took a brief break from The Met’s “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll” exhibition…to make a surprise appearance at last night’s @DeadandCompany concert! John Mayer rocked out with “Wolf,” Garcia’s main guitar with the #GratefulDead from 1973 until 1979, during a period when he was expanding his “astral” country and blues sound. The guitar will be back on view at The Met tomorrow, June 25. 📷 by @jayblakesberg.#MetRockandRoll
Beowulf comes to life at @themetcloisters ! Join us next Friday, June 28, for a performative rock-noir reimagining of the famous epic and explore the intricacies of mankind's relationship with power and violence. Staged in the Fuentidueña Chapel, "The Ninth Hour: The Beowulf Story" is a classic story of glory and ruin—as told through triumphant pop anthems, heart-wrenching lullabies, heroes, and monsters.
Performances at 6 pm and 8 pm. Book your tickets at the link in bio.

Did you know #TheFrick has a killer rooftop? Always a joy to end the week on an NYC roof. ☀️ Thank you for having us for this year’s
#MuseumInstaswap —it was a blast! 🙏 Until our next stop by, we highly recommend a visit to the @frickcollection to explore all on view and more. #TheMet
And now for a peek at...the bowling alley! 🎳😍 The maple and pine lanes and gravity-propelled ball return system were built in 1914. A total strike in our book. Check our Story for more views of the alley! #TheMet#TheFrick#MuseumInstaswap
Loving “Elective Affinities: Edmund de Waal” at the @frickcollection ! Each minimalist vessel—some porcelain, some steel, some gold, some marble—is specifically designed to pair with a work from The Frick’s collection. (Surprise, surprise—we’re total suckers for different eras and different types of art connecting with one another!) #TheFrick#TheMet#MuseumInstaswap
“The Lovers” returns. Earlier this week, we covered Marc Chagall’s “The Lovers” to consider what would be lost from The Met’s walls without the contributions of refugee artists. Today, as #WorldRefugeeDay comes to an end, we un-shroud the painting—but we don’t forget Chagall’s contributions or those of so many other refugees. 🙏 Thank you for joining us all week alongside @theirc to highlight works of art made by refugees.
