A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of spending some time with a group of really awesome teens who are apart of a Chicago based youth program known as TRACE: Teens Re-Imagining Art, Community & Environment.
__
These teens are current fellows who all have interest in various forms of art, public art and community or youth focused arts education and engagement!

A very special S/o to Ivan, Hannah, Dartonya, Jane, Jane Myles for stopping by to visit and to our very own Darcy & Jeary for being great host.

The pieces for today’s #littleknownmet is
in gallery 743, and it is a Tiffany favrile glass vase. This beautiful, iridescent vase was made by Louis Comfort Tiffany in the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company in 1900-1915. Read more about it below!
-
“This so-called jack-in-the-pulpit vase is one
of the quintessential shapes in Tiffany’s oeuvre of blown glass. Essentially a flower form, it has a flattened globular base resembling a bulb rising into a slender stalk to an open blossom with a ruffled rim. The outer rim has a feathery appearance, as if
the iridescence on the surface developed shallow fissures when the molten blossom was expanded to its final form.”
-
The second piece has a very similar style to the
Tiffany vase, showing possible influence from the well known Tiffany brand. A more lesser known, but still incredible artist, Victor Durand from Vineland Flint Glassworks is the designer of this beautiful vase made in 1924-30.
-
“In 1924, having learned new techniques and formulas
from workers at Brooklyn’s Quezal factory, Victor Durand added art glass to his predominantly commercial output at Vineland Flint Glass Works. He produced simple shapes with iridescent Art Nouveau-inspired decoration, such as this vase.”

Today's #littleKnownMet is Joseph Stella's "Coney Island" from Modern and Contemporary Art (Gallery 908). More information is below!
-
"A kaleidoscope of dazzling color and fragmented form, Stella's abstract painting evokes the electric lights and energetic crowds of Brooklyn's Coney Island amusement park and boardwalk. Celebrating the intoxicating and sometimes disorienting dynamism of modern life, "Coney Island" reveals the painter's knowledge of Italian Futurism, which Stella was exposed to during a trip to Italy and France in 1910-11. The composition's circular, or to do, format links it to Renaissance depictions of holy subjects."

For our first #TeenInternTuesday of the summer, meet Grace!
-
"My name is Grace Shi, and my department is Family Programs. The coolest thing about working at The Met has to be being able to come in before and after hours. One day, I went in early and I got to see the Heavenly Bodies exhibit. It was just amazing to be able to be there alone without a crowd, and I loved having my own time with the pieces. It gave me the chance to really read and learn about everything displayed at my own pace. The music was incredible and it really took me back to Medieval times!"

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to visit the @icp (International Center of Photography) School and library.

Any teen interested should definitely check them out and visit the museum downtown at 250 Bowery.

Last week the Met Teen Social Media team had a chance to interview La Keisha Leek, Manager of Kenan Project and one of the many women here at The Met. She is currently creating a social justice residency at the Met.

Here is an excerpt of the interview:

Met Teens: What is your definition of art?
La Keisha: Art is a very broad word. When you think of the Met you think of old white guys and art history, but for me art was a way to connect my interests to real life. There are a lot of times where I see something in the art world and it’ll remind me of a personal memory. I see as everything as art.
Met Teens: Any advice?
La Keisha: In whatever you do, feel confident in your abilities and if you are uncomfortable then maybe you are on to something.

The Power of Hair

"As part of The Met's Museum Seminar (MuSe) Internship Program, my fellow interns and I developed our very own guided tours.

I took this chance to explore the presence of hair in The Met collection. I'm about halfway through my 12-month internship, and I've gotten the chance to talk about the power of hair with a number of visitors. Now I can't wait to give you a virtual peek at my tour. " —Johanna

Johanna Obenda, twelve-month Education intern, takes readers on a virtual tour of hair in The Met collection and invites visitors to join her for Intern Insights—The Power of Hair on Tuesday, February 21.

Appreciating Cultures Different from Our Own

"Not only did Manet paint this singer in such a lifelike manner, but he also gave him emotion. I think that, in this painting, Manet celebrates an aspect of Spanish culture and the great emotion the singer is able to convey.

The closest personal experience I have of seeing culture celebrated this way relates to fashion. I have seen inspiration for clothing taken from Latin American countries like Ecuador, where I'm from."

—Wellington

Former intern Wellington writes about his impression of Édouard Manet's "The Spanish Singer," and discusses how art can be used to illustrate respect for and acceptance of other cultures.
