The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is America's largest Art Museum, with a massive collection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, books, furniture and costumes. The large museum is governed by 41 elected trustees and a total of 960 fellows and benefactors. The original building was built by Calvert Vaux. Later on society architect Richard Morris Hunt was brought in the building an expansion wing. Eventually 8 wings were added, built by Stanford White, Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo. The wings completely engulfed the original museum, so that now you can only see the front of original building in the Lehman Wing.
