The MET - Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas

Metropolitan Museum of Art
March 31, 2018

One of the more interesting areas of the MET is their collection of art of the people of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. I wished I had all the time to stay longer and just appreciate the artworks. Wooden figures of worship, bead works, masks, dolls, ceramics, vessels, costumes and objects some dating as far back as 3000 BCE (Before Common Era).

Took a few photos as there was just too much to see and learn from.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met)

Our admission to the Met Cloisters was good for 3 days in all The Met Museums. An opportunity I cannot pass. After a Jollibee lunch (again!) and desserts at Red Ribbon we headed to The Metropolitan Museum of Art at 1000 5th Avenue.

I vowed to know and explore more about the place I call home. Toronto
And this brought me around the Trinity Bellwood Area one Saturday afternoon.

Interesting, colorful buildings.

And a park.
