Metropolitan Museum of Art

I'm taking my students to New York next month and I'm at a loss as to what to show them. I think the MOMA is too expensive for them, and MICA is not subsidizing, so I'm taking them to the Met instead (and telling them they can pay a dollar for entrance; sorry, Metmuseum).  In planning the trip, I realized that I only really visit the same three galleries every time I'm there (the Velazquez room, the Sargent room, the Rembrandt room). I am such a fuddy-duddy! If anyone has any thoughts about not-to-be-missed paintings, preferably after the 1900s, that are at the Met, please email me ( or comment here (trying to be better about my comments:)).  I'm super jazzed about the new Islamic art galleries.  The New York Times was really prostituting itself over them this morning in the paper.
