The five-year diary functions like a time capsule; each page has a month and day at the top and five spaces to jot down a line about what happened on that day over a five-year period (the diary is not year-specific and can be started at any time). Drawing from highlights of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s world-class collections, this five-year diary features an inspiring work of art on every page, identified with a brief caption. Selected with holidays, seasons, and rhythms of the year in mind, these pieces represent the vast traditions and eras of creative output housed under the Museum’s roof.
