There are many reasons to visit the Met this summer with your little ones.

There is a new exhibit in the Roof Garden of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (April 29 - Nov 2, 2014). This installation by Dan Graham (born 1942, Urbana, Illinois) titled “Hedge Two-Way Mirror Walkabout” is the second in a new series of site-specific commissions for the Museum's Roof Garden. Comprising curves of steel and two-way mirrored glass set between ivy hedgerows, Graham's structure is part garden maze, part modernist skyscraper facade. Viewers who enter the work are transformed into performers; in glimpsing their own reflections, they are also made acutely aware of the act of looking.
