The Metropolitan Museum of Art unveiled Yoko Ono’s message of Hope to New Yorkers and the world in anticipation of its reopening on August 29th after a nearly six-month closure. Two 24 foot x 26 foot banners framing the main entrance to the museum broadcast her message, DREAM TOGETHER, in response to the global Covid-19 crisis. Black letters on a white field. Stark and bold. Simple yet complex. Fitting and appropriate somehow for these times before us. A call to never stop doing what New Yorkers instinctively do on our best days, imagine what can be. And a reminder that even in these strange, socially-distanced times (the banners are even doing their part), Together really is the only way. On view through September 13, 2020. #dreamtogethernyc
Socially-distanced visit at its finest, under the Linden trees in front of The MET. Brilliant.
