    18th Century Butts, Moving Statues And Other 'Metropolitan Stories'

    Every year, millions of people visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It holds thousands of years of art history: Egyptian temples, Renaissance sculptures, iconic 20th century paintings.
    Admittedly, it's a little much.

    "For the public this is one of those great and magnificent spaces that can be hugely intimidating," says Christine Coulson, standing in the museum's great hall. "But for me this feels like home."
    Coulson worked at the Met for 25 years, often writing speeches or lectures for the museum's director to deliver. Now, she is writing in her own voice — and sometimes, in the voice of the artworks themselves.
    Her debut novel, Metropolitan Stories, goes behind the scenes at the museum. It's a series of loosely connected stories about the people and objects that fill the galleries.

    She gave NPR a tour of what she calls her "second home," featuring some of the objects that made their way into the book.

    Baltimore Museum Of Art Will Only Buy Works By Women Next Year

    Name:  2018.80_sherald_gallery-a24962c74b9baf987dae4e1b28c7f38682898f33-s1100-c15.jpg

    The Baltimore Museum of Art will only buy works by women next year, as part of a yearlong series exhibiting art by women. Amy Sherald's Planes, rockets, and the spaces in between (2018) is among the 3,800 works by women in the museum's collection.

    Step into one of the nation's top art museums, and most of the works you'll see were made by men.
    The Baltimore Museum of Art has decided to make a bold step to correct that imbalance: next year, the museum will only purchase works made by female-identifying artists.

    "This how you raise awareness and shift the identity of an institution," museum director Christopher Bedford told The Baltimore Sun. "You don't just purchase one painting by a female artist of color and hang it on the wall next to a painting by Mark Rothko. To rectify centuries of imbalance, you have to do something radical."

    You Too Can Spend The Night In An Edward Hopper Painting

    At the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, guests can book a night in a re-creation of Edward Hopper's 1957 "Western Motel." A standard stay runs from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m., The New York Times reports.

    DAVID GREENE, HOST:
    Good morning. I'm David Greene. Some paintings look so inviting, you just want to curl up inside the frame, right? Well, at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, guests can book a night in a recreation of Edward Hopper's "Western Motel." Everything from the painting is there - even the warm light streaming through the window. One guest told The New York Times she had always wanted to sleep in a museum. Now, I should say the room does go on display for visitors during the day, so 8 a.m. checkout, all right?

    Leonardo da Vinci's "Madonna of the Rocks" (left) and "La belle Ferronnière" or Portrait of an Unknown Woman (right), are both part of the Louvre's exhibition.

    The largest-ever collection of works by Leonardo da Vinci is drawing record crowds at the Louvre in Paris this year, the 500th anniversary of the artist's death. The Louvre has brought together more than 100 paintings, drawings and manuscripts for the exhibition, which opened in October and will end in February.
    Leonardo was a perfectionist, which is why, experts say, he produced only about 15 paintings. The exhibition includes 11 of them, the most ever brought together in one place. The Louvre keeps five of his paintings in its permanent collection.

    Tai Shani, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Helen Cammock and Oscar Murillo pose for photographs after their names were announced as joint winners of the 2019 Turner Prize.

    On Tuesday night, four young artists had a chance to join a pantheon of Turner Prize winners, a list studded with a slew of marquee names. Like many of the awards handed out in the arts community, from the National Book Awards to the Oscars, the judges were expected to pluck just one winner from the crop of finalists — just as the prize named for painter J.M.W. Turner had been doing for some three and a half decades.
