Material for a NYC Road Trip

An exhibit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art running through August 23 looks like it's worth catching.

Titled Pen and Parchment: Drawing in the Middle Ages, the exhibit features 50 little-seen medieval works spanning nearly five centuries; pieces include illuminated manuscripts, illustrated plays, charts, diagrams, and maps. A New York Times review describe the works as "vital, evolving, remarkably diverse and essential to the medium’s Renaissance blossoming."

Work schedule permitting, I will have to look into a road trip to NYC some time in the next nine weeks to take this in.
