A Tangled Mess at The Met
A cocktail on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the perennial must-do of summer in the city. Yearly, new sculptures are installed and exhibited from April to October. Highlights of past displays include a grouping of Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Brueggen works, some very brash Jeff Koons, and a few soaring Frank Stellas. The sculptures are a wonderful addition, but the majority of people truly go for the booze and the view. So when the artwork is not only heinous, blocking the Central Park view and amking the line to the bar an even tighter crush than usual, the must-do becomes a don't-do.
