A new Artist in Residence will bring the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s galleries to life with original dance works.

Objects from the museum’s collection anchor musical performances, as Man with a Guitar by Pablo Picasso will for Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments by his friend Igor Stravinsky.
