Christine Coulson - Metropolitan Stories — in conversation with Evan Ryan

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 13, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

A veteran of more than 25 years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Coulson knows the institution intimately, as she showed in her New York Times Style Magazine piece, “Behind the Scenes at the Met.” Her new book expands that beguiling glimpse of the museum’s private side into an engaging series of stories, fables, and vignettes. Introducing some of the 2,000 people employed at the Met and guiding us through the offices, storerooms, and conservation studios where they work, Coulson pays tribute to a beloved institution and illuminates both human nature and the deeper life of art. Coulson will be in conversation with Evan Ryan, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational Cultural Affairs under President Obama.
