CITY COLLEGE — A major exhibit dedicated to the flourishing art and culture of the Harlem Renaissance will be on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art through most of the summer.

The artworks in “The Harlem Renaissance and Transatlantic Modernism” exhibit date from the 1920s and 40s and showcase the dynamic energy and resilience of the creative spirit in Harlem at the time.

“The art in this exhibit may be equal to or better than anything in the museum,” said Met member Dominic C., who is a frequent visitor to the Fifth Avenue institution. He was able to appreciate the 160 works that are in the exhibit on a special tour before the exhibit opening on Sunday.
