For the first time ever, The Met is dedicating the spaces reserved for its facade banners to display art.
Yoko Ono's DREAM TOGETHER (2020) offers a powerful message of hope and unity. Created in response to the global COVID-19 crisis, Ono's two banners are composed of black letters on a white field—the south banner reads, "DREAM," and the north, "TOGETHER."
Ono's inspiring work joins Wangechi Mutu's The NewOnes, will free Us (2019), an installation of four bronze sculptures that occupy the niches of the Museum's Beaux-Arts facade. Together they present a bold and moving message for the future.
