The New York Metropolitan Opera's Contemporary Art Gallery
Dr. Beth Grosshans, a retired New Jersey-based clinical child psychologist, has spent 25 years working with families and children. After retiring, she wrote the 2008 parenting book, Beyond Time Out: From Chaos to Calm, which connected troubling childhood behavior to parents giving over too much of their power. Outside of her child psychology and writing careers, Beth Grosshans serves as an advisory board member for the New York Metropolitan Opera.
Best known for its stage productions, the Met Opera also features a contemporary art gallery in its south lobby. Named after advisory board director Marie Schwartz and her late husband, the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Gallery Met continues to showcase the Met Opera’s love of the visual arts. Exhibitions often feature work from renowned artists like Marc Chagall and David Hockney, while also fostering new collaborative opportunities for other artists.
Gallery Met admission is free for both Met ticket holders and the general public. To learn more about the New York Metropolitan Opera and the Arnold and Maria Schwartz Gallery Met, visit the organization online at metopera.org.
