“For the perfect life, sooner or later you need to have a challenge - you need to leave your comfort zone.
If you do not leave your comfort zone, your life, both in the macro sense and in the day to day, will be unmemorable.
If you leave your comfort zone, then there’s going to be a moment of transformation where the person you were in a small way dies and a new better version of yourself is reborn..." - from “A Memorable Post”, linked in bio.
EXCHANGE STUDENT • It’s not often (read: never) that a museum girl gets invited to the New York Stock Exchange. Thank you Josh King @polioptics for bringing art into your ICE HOUSE podcast. Really enjoyed talking about METROPOLITAN STORIES: A NOVEL with you. See link in bio. • “We often say that the NYSE is one of the four iconic American buildings, along with the White House, the U.S. Capitol, and the Supreme Court. You could add the Metropolitan Museum of Art to that list. Christine Coulson shares what really happens when the visitors leave and the art comes alive in her new book, Metropolitan Stories.”
“Morning Ritual “ when I was 5 yrs. old I shared a bedroom with my oldest sister. I was in kindergarten she was in College. She was very much into the arts and had subscribed to a collection of books from the Metropolitan Museum of Art . The books included prints of the famous paintings being discussed. My sister would hang them all over our room, put classical music on light candles and make me listen to her discussions on them. I cried to our Mother “ make her stop” but I’m glad she didn’t. Maybe that’s why I paint today . My sister just gave my these books and I’m not crying about them now. Maybe two days a week I’ll spend brushing up on a little Art History and hang up my prints. #metropolitanmuseumofart#artbooks#arthistorystudent#studiolifestyle#morningrituals#studyart#whatisapainting#seminarsinart#paintedriverstudios#creativeprocess

I have posted pictures of Italian intarsia by Barili and Giovanni. Here is a panel by the third of the great intarsiatori, Damaiano da Bergamo. There is a wonderful story about Damaiano. The Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V, visited Damaiano’s workshop and insisted that there must be paint on the panel. This offended Damaiano, who picked up a plane and shaved off a ribbon off the picture. This masterpiece from 1548 is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum. @strazzafurniture#intarsia#inlay#metropolitanmuseumofart#marquetry
A random collection of other things i found interesting in the Met. The 6th picture is just me being an asshole because i couldn't get over how bad this woman's "rendition" was of the painting she was copying. Please note the snowman in the bottom right corner of her painting. I was super disappointed though.. when we went contemporary art was closed and there were a few Dali's in there that i wanted to see and the huge Egyptian temple was closed too! Those were the two things i was most excited for. Just my kind of luck. #themet#metropolitanmuseumofart#newyorkcity#newyork#manhattan#travel#museum#art

Education always continues. We all know that beauty fades, but what stays is a person's personality, their sense of humor, their wit, what they're interested in. That's what really shines
Päivällä menimme opiskelukaverini @catarinade.p kanssa japanilaiseen lounaalle. Mukava oli istahtaa ja jutella. Catarina on brasilialainen arkkitehti ja pienen kukkatilan pitäjä sekä etenkin suuri Alvar Aalto fani. No siitäkös sitä juttua sitten riittikin. Toki muustakin. Catarinaa on kovasti inspiroinut Aalto ja onpa hän kerran vieraillut myös suomessa Aallon muutamissa kohteissa. Hän oli hyvin perillä miehen saavutuksista ja videolla kertookin omalla kielellään ajatuksia Aallosta. No, toivotin tervetulleeksi toisenkin kerran vierailulle Suomeen. Lupasin järkätä ainakin Jyväskylään ja Rovaniemelle ikimuistoisen Aaltokierroksen 👍😊 loppuillaksi sitten piipahdin Metropolitanin taidemuseoon. On muuten valtavan kokoinen paikka jota ei yhdellä kerralla pysty käymään läpi. Se, mikä on jotenkin hienoa, että ihmiset menevät museoon viettämään aikaa. Toki siellä on paljon turisteja mutta myös opiskelijoita jotka luonnostelevat jotakin taideteosta hyvinkin pieteetillä omaan vihkoonsa. Samoin päiväkotiryhmä makasi tänään museon lattialla taidetta kuunnellen ja katsellen. Osa on ihan vain taiteen nauttijoita mutta myös hengailijoita, kirjan lukijoita tai kahvittelijoita. Ja näyttää se lienee toimivan treffipaikkanakin, kun minua yritettiin iskeä 😂 juu, siis pyydettiin niinku treffeille. No, mie vaan et, en mie nyt ku miul on täs vähän muuta hommaa..... 😁 #metropolitanmuseumofart#art#museum#newyork#fiftyavenue#alvaraalto#aalto#arkkitehtuuri
The Last Knight: The Art, Armor and the Ambition of Maximillian I, The Metropolitan Museum of Art apart from admiring the ingenuity, sensational design and craftsmanship of metallurgy, this exhibition could make you feel sorry for the horse. #medievalarmor#maximilian#metmuseum#metropolitanmuseumofart
Have you been to the rooftop at the MET? Not only does it boast some stunning views of central park and the city skyline, but each year an artist is commissioned to create something for the unique space. This year, the rooftop exhibit was created by Berlin-based artist Alicja Kwade. Called "ParaPivot", the piece brings together art and scince with a sculptural constellation. Check it out before it's gone! The installation will be on display until Oct. 27 💫 #mysecretnyc
