I’ve been lucky enough to tour the construction going on in the MET’s American Wing several times in the last few years. My own interest in Americana and furniture not withstanding, it is an exciting move for the museum, bringing back the glory of the Wing and incorporating some new technology to the displays. Carol Vogel covers the renovation in today’s NYT. A great lesson for those unfamiliar with this portion of the MET and complimented by a glorious selection of images.

A few more pictures after the jump.
