Members go behind the scenes with curators and specialists, experience the Museum after hours and get to know fellow supporters at a range of private events. Support from this group goes directly to The Met Apollo Circle Fund for Art Conservation, which helps the Museum preserve and study works of art in the collection.

Mark your calendars for this Friday, April 3, and get ready for a wondrous, inspiring evening at home! 🎶

Join us here on Facebook on Friday at 7 pm for the world premiere screening of #MetLiveArts production of the iconic American opera, "The Mother of Us All," performed at the Museum earlier this year.

Presented in collaboration with The Juilliard School and the New York Philharmonic and led by some of today's most dynamic and pioneering young artists working in opera, this fully staged site-specific performance imaginatively chronicles the story of Susan B. Anthony and the women's suffrage movement.

With music by Virgil Thomson and libretto by Gertrude Stein, the vivid, gripping story mirrors many of today's continued struggles for the civil rights of people disenfranchised on the basis of gender, race, and sexuality.

What Is Printmaking?

Last November, Apollo Circle hosted a printmaking workshop for members to celebrate the holidays. Now you can learn more about printmaking techniques on this new page of The Met's website!

Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix onto another surface, most often paper or fabric.
