So, I have to admit I planned the event with the Met so I may be partial. But, it was definitely a fabulous and amazing experience – see the pics! Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted Art + Jazz with nearly 1,000 guests in attendance. The evening included conversation and performances that explored the relationship between art and jazz with live music by The Gabe Schnider Septet, and a performance by dancer Michela Marino Lerman. The conversation was followed by a cocktail reception in The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing.
