The Cloisters Museum & Gardens
12/03/2021 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET
[Virtual tour] The Cloisters are part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but located in a separate, most interesting building in Fort Tyron Park, which not only resembles a European medieval monastery, but actually integrates architectural elements from various structures in France and Spain. The enchanting cloister gardens are an important integral part of the museum, planted with culinary and medicinal plants, as well as those used for dyeing fabrics, specifically those used for the Unicorn Tapestries, which are a major highlight of the collection. There are many treasures in this collection, including painting and sculpture, stained glass windows, illuminated books, carved ivory objects, enamels - all giving great insight into live during medieval times. Join tour guide and art historian Sylvia Laudien-Meo for this virtual visit!
