Joel Greifinger Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the pictures. I got to see the new wing this weekend, and it lived up to the excellent reviews I'd read. Here are a couple of related links: the first an article in Saudi Aramco World by Walter Denny on the construction of the exhibit

a video of the galleries, with curator's commentary

and a short notice and pictures by Julia Bailey from my hometown rug society newsletter on the opening (p.10-11)

New Islamic galleries at the Met

I had meetings in New York last week and took time to visit the new Islamic Galleries at the Met.
Pictures are here:

Sorry about the poor picture quality, but many pieces are behind glass and flash photography is prohibited.

Jeff
