Take a tour of the Met without leaving your house with the Shady Ladies Tours, popular purveyor of art museum tours, and the Unhung Heroes of the Metropolitan. This Zoom tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s most illustrious male body parts on Saturday, September 12 at 2:00PM EST.
Guided by Professor Andrew Lear, the online tour explores male members in paintings and sculptures across the Metropolitan. Are these artworks true to life size? Were men really smaller once upon a time? And who broke off the statues’ missing body parts? Is there hidden phallic symbolism in your favorite painting? For art lovers who’ve ever wondered about these and other questions, this tour has the answers.
Visitors will also get to learn about the aesthetic ideals of Greek culture and how they have affected the whole history of art without clothes.
Tickets to the online tour are $10 and available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/unhung-heroes-of-the-metropolitan-museum-tickets-114332421350.
