$1 Million Pledged to the Metroplitan Museum’s Performance and Talks Series

Adrienne Arsht has pledged $1 million in support of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s series of performances and talks, the “Met Museum Presents,” which is now in its second season and comprises approximately one hundred events annually that are based on the museum’s collection, exhibitions, and gallery spaces. The grant will fund the next three seasons of the series and bring together performers, scholars, and thinkers from around the world. Said director Thomas P. Campbell: “For years, Adrienne Arsht has been a philanthropic force in the performing arts and her generous grant to the Metropolitan Museum signals her confidence in the bold direction that our Concerts & Lectures general manager Limor Tomer has embraced over the past two years. Adrienne’s support will encourage the growth of this ground-breaking programming as Limor mines our collections, collaborates with our curators, and takes creative risks to bring a fresh perspective to the museum. We are grateful to Adrienne for her vision and generosity in making this possible.”
