Arnold & Marie Schwartz
Gallery Met

Located in the Met's south lobby, the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Gallery Met hosts works by some of the contemporary art world's most innovative and provocative figures. Conceived by General Manager Peter Gelb and Dodie Kazanjian, the founding director and curator, the venue continues and reaffirms the Met's long history of groundbreaking relationships with major visual artists—such as Chagall and Hockney—while fostering new opportunities for collaboration. Admission to the Schwartz Gallery Met is free to ticket holders and to the general public.

A $1 million gift from Marie Schwartz, an Advisory Director on the Met Board, has made this initiative possible, and in recognition the Met has named the gallery for her and her late husband, Arnold.



Gallery Met is accessible from the plaza level. 


Mon - Fri:
