Epic Beauty and Human Struggle at Vital Winslow Homer at the Met

When we go to a museum, what are we hoping to experience? Awe? Escape? A jolt of energy? Or perhaps a sense of deeper understanding. A feeling of connection with the past.

If you can, you should definitely see this one for yourself (and if not, we’re sharing photos): there’s epic beauty and human struggle on display at the vital Winslow Homer Crosscurrents exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum (aka the Met) in New York City.
