Have you heard? This Friday, Oct. 17, from 5pm-8pm NYC Teens rule The Met. That’s a full three hours of FREE Friday night fun.
The Met is bringing in 40+ of the coolest organizations around (think 3D Systems, The Intrepid, WNYC, The Roundabout Theatre Company…) to set up activity stations all over the museum for teens ages 13-18.
So, in addition to, you know, hanging out with the work of the most famous visual artists in the world and of all time, you can take a dance class with Ailey Extension, or just hit the floor with DJ Kakez from BETs Black Girls Rock. Or there’s always designing military apparel and protective gear with the Intrepid, trying your hand at Chinese calligraphy, designing tattoos with MAD, creating and performing short plays, and much, much more.
No RSVP required, just enter through the Education Entrance of the museum on 81st street and show your middle or high school I.D. Free food and drinks will be available in The Met’s cafeteria.
Visit The Met’s page for more details, including a detailed schedule and map of all the activities.
