THE MET: Standing in Solidarity, Serving Our Community with Virtual Programs

The Met

The Met stands in solidarity with the Black community in the fight for racial justice. As long-overdue attention is being brought to all those who have suffered because of systemic racism, injustice, and violence, we at The Met are focused on the work our Museum needs to do in response. We invite you to read a message from our President and Director to staff from earlier this week.

We remain committed to serving and listening to our community through meaningful programs, talks, performances, and more. Join us for this week's virtual events, and feel free to share your feedback with us.

Digital Premiere—Silas Farley: Songs from the Spirit

Saturday, June 6, 7:30–8:30 pm

In Songs from the Spirit, New York City Ballet dancer and choreographer Silas Farley asks, "What does freedom mean?" Featuring spirituals and new music created by currently and formerly incarcerated men at San Quentin State Prison in California, the work explores separation from community and finding grace in the midst of darkness. In collaboration with PRX Radiotopia's Ear Hustle, these artists offer a nuanced view of an exiled population and the irrepressible human drive to create. Read a message from Silas Farley. Join us tonight at 7:30 pm →
