The Philippe de Montebello Years at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is honoring Philippe de Montebello who will be stepping down as director after 30 years of service. He will be leaving December 31, 2008 and to celebrate his presence at the famed museum, an exhibition showcasing pieces of art that was acquired during those 30 years. A team of curators got together and sifted through over 84,000 pieces that the museum came into possession of during those 3 decades and selected a fraction of those works to be shown in this exhibition that will run through February 1, 2009.
