Discover the Ancient Treasures of the Americas at This New Exhibit
Be sure to see the latest special exhibit to open at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, entitled Golden Kingdoms: Luxury & Legacy in the Ancient Americas! This landmark exhibition of luxury arts of the Incas, the Aztecs, and their predecessors traces the emergence and florescence of gold working in the ancient Americas, from its earliest appearance in the Andes to its later developments farther north in Central America and Mexico.
In the ancient Americas, metalworking developed in the context of ritual and regalia, rather than for tools, weapons, or currency. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Golden Kingdoms reveals the distinctive ways ancient Americans used not only metals, but also jade, shell, and feathers—materials often considered more valuable than gold. Bringing together newly discovered archaeological finds and masterpieces from major museums in Latin America, Europe, and the United States, this exhibition casts new light on these ancient civilizations and their place within world history. Come learn how materials were selected and transformed, imbued with meaning, and deployed in the most important rituals of their time! You can explore it all at this unprecedented exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
At B' nai B'rith Queens Apartments in Flushing, New York, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
