Join The Writers Circle's very first field trip especially for adults. We'll meet at The Metropolitan Museum of Art to explore some of the lesser known nooks and crannies of the museum, under the thoughtful guidance of Art Historian Dorothy Kelly. As we immerse ourselves in the museum's collection, we'll take time for art-inspired writing prompts led by TWC Directors Judith Lindbergh and Michelle Cameron. Come explore one of our very favorite places on earth and discovery the beauty and inspiration of the Met’s secret treasures!
