New York 2017: Thomas Hart Benton’s “America Today” Mural at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Fifth Avenue

In March 2017 I made my first visit to New York – a mammoth weekend of exploring, eating and freezing my ass / arse off in temperatures of -6C (wind chill -12C).  A non-stop, full-on joy-fest with my brother that took in a lot of the main sites.

But of everything I saw, one thing stopped me in my tracks.

We went in to the Met museum and whilst exploring the Modern and Contemporary Art section I came across “America Today” by Thomas Hart Benton. I was not familiar with either.

If you find yourself in New York, do not miss this mural in particular and the museum in general. Both are superb.

Feast your eyes on the following…
