We were told the wait would be 20 minutes, but it was really one hour. But I can tell you, Lil Diva, her best friend, and I all said it was definitely worth the wait. The pieces were breathtaking! The MET did a wonderful job creating the ambiance of beauty meets macabre with the backgrounds, music, and lighting.
With less than three weeks left till the exhibit closes, I consider myself one of the lucky ones that was able to revel in the sheer beauty of his most prized pieces up close. If you happen to be in the NYC are between now and August 7th, do make it a point to visit the MET. You will be glad you did!
