Calling all makers! Get inspired by this hands-on project and explore a work of art using materials you can find at home:

This week, make a portrait of an important woman in your life or your neighborhood to celebrate all the things they do! New activities launch each week, and don't forget to share your creations using @metmuseum and #MetKidsCreate.

This artwork is by Alice Neel, who was an American artist who often painted families and people in her community. The woman in this painting, Mercedes Arroyo, was an activist who wanted to improve her East Harlem neighborhood, where Neel lived and painted for many years. She sits with her arm resting on the back of a chair and tilts her head to the right. She seems to be deep in thought. What might she be thinking

As part of our #MetAccess program, every month we invite Disabled and Deaf artists to respond to works in The Met's collection that spark their curiosity or inspiration. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
This month, Alison O'Daniel reflects on this late 9th – early 10th century bowl:⁣⁣⁣⁣

"In my films I write open captions as a third narrative space equal to images and sound. My films acknowledge my hard of hearing perspective as a value system. ⁣

I’ve been thinking a lot about perceptions of partial or fragmented existences. A more interesting vantage point is born when the commitment to the ‘whole’ collapses. ⁣

The missing story of this Iranian bowl’s breaking, and that its new form is like an ear, the interior wrapped with its own caption—'God is Sovereign'—becomes a form of storytelling that, for me, is more generous and profound than originally ever intended. From my perspective, it is sovereign."⁣

This month, Jerron Herman reflects on this 1650 portrait of Juan de Pareja:⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
"I’m attracted to this piece for several reasons—chiefly a brown face in classical portraiture, but it also interestingly references this alluring relationship between 'outsiders' and their gatekeepers: how a world embraces someone from a distant background but that person, Juan here, is/was/and will always be historically part of the canon. Juan was already prolific and demonstrated so later. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As a Disabled dancer, this is my portrait—I was invited into art and ensconced by others, yes, but I sustain due to my complex prowess and aesthetics. How much more so for other 'outsiders'?"⁣⁣

Today Ezra Benus Ezra Benus shares his thoughts on "Waking Up" by Henri Toulouse-Lautrec:⁣

"Waking up is hard. Getting out of bed with the expectation to be 'productive' these days is even harder. This lithograph, illustrated by the iconic Disabled artist Toulouse-Lautrec, is of a woman cozied up in bed under ruffled sheets with her head half-buried in the pillows, peering at us with her right eye glinting sleepily, and her left hand resting softly on a pillow. It made me feel less alone.⁣

I am offering this post in recognition of those who are still in bed, don’t want to leave bed, can’t leave bed. For those who feel as 'drab green' as the ink used for printing this artwork, for those who have felt this way long before this pandemic, and will again in the future. Your feelings are valid. Rest is important material.⁣

I’m writing this especially to and for my sick, chronically ill, Disabled friends and communities, who like myself might be dealing with chronic pain, anxiety, and depressive feelings compounded by isolation at the moment making it hard to wake up, get out of bed.⁣

You are not alone or forgotten. Take all the time you need, to wake up and get out of bed (or don’t). Stay cozy. Wear a mask. We are in this together."⁣

🎨 Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864–1901). Waking Up, 1896. Lithograph printed in drab green on wove paper. #MetAccess #DisabilityArts #AccessIsLove #NothingAboutUsWithoutUs⁣

#MetAccess celebrates #IDPWD International Day of People with Disabilities.
Every month, #MetAccess and @metmuseum invite disabled and Deaf artists to respond to a work of art in the Met collection that inspired them.
Today, the Artist Spotlight is on Laura Swanson.

12/03/2020

Today, we celebrate the International Day of People With Disabilities #IPDWD The World Health Organization reports that over 15% of the world's population lives with a disability.
That t is almost 1 in 6 person.
Look around you. Can you tell? Many of us have invisible disabilities including mental or neurological conditions, vision or hearing impairments, chronic illnesses etc.

Many artists represented in museums across the globe have/had disabilities and so often it is not mentioned or their disability is an obstacle they had to overcome. Actually, disability can be central to someone's experience and understanding of the world, and a source of ingenuity, creativity, and innovation. So let's change those narratives of overcoming and erasure #CripTheMet #NothingAboutUSWithoutUS #DisabilityAesthetic

Our colleagues @metamericanwing are highlighting John Carlin's work today!

We recognize nineteenth-century American artist John Carlin, who was Deaf. While attending what is now the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Carlin proved himself a talented artist. He went on to study painting with John Rubens Smith and John Neagle of Philadelphia before going to Paris to study with the academic master Paul Delaroche. Upon his return to the United States, Carlin settled in New York and became one of the city’s most sought after miniaturists. He also painted genre and landscape scenes and was an accomplished author and poet. He was untiring in his advocacy on behalf of the Deaf community and helped to establish the National Deaf-Mute College (now Gallaudet University @gallaudetu) in Washington, D.C.

#MetAccess we’re inviting Disabled and Deaf artists to respond to works from the #MetCollection that spark their curiosity or inspire them. ⁣

Sky Cubacub (@rebirthgarments) shares their thoughts on this 18th-century arm guard from @metarmsandarmor known as a dastana:

"Armor doesn’t have to be beautiful to serve its intended function, but the aesthetics can help give the wearer confidence in a fight.

I am anti-war, but I view clothing as emotional armor that people with marginalized identities can use to get the strength and power to go out into this world, which can especially feel like a battle these days.

I am Filipinx and I wear modern versions of scalemaille—protective armor consisting of many individual small metal scales—and chainmaille on a daily basis ​in the form of handpieces and a headpiece. I was drawn to this South Asian arm guard that is highly decorative including etched plate armor, chainmaille and a beaded embroidery handpiece."
