TRIP Supports Landmark Exhibition at The Met

We are delighted to provide support for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s landmark Jerusalem 1000–1400: Every People Under Heaven opening September 20, 2016. This is the first major exhibition to unravel the various cultural traditions and aesthetic strands that enriched and enlivened the medieval city during the most creative moment in the most complex city on earth.

The exhibition features more than 200 works, nearly a quarter from Jerusalem, including loans from the city’s religious communities some of which have never been seen before outside their walls. Jerusalem played a crucial role in shaping world culture—a lesson vital to our common history. TRIP is helping underwrite a 350-page illustrated catalogue appropriate for both specialists and general readers alike. Barbara D. Boehm and Melanie Holcomb, curators in the Met’s Department of Medieval Art and the Cloisters, along with scholars from the United States, Europe and Middle East, contributed to the exhibition catalogue, to be published by the museum and distributed by Yale University Press.

We encourage you to visit the exhibition this fall and experience the museum’s corresponding series of programs.

Wishing you a lovely summer,

Robin Tauck and Colleen Ritzau Leth
