As of September 2015, some good exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City are "Grand Illusions: Staged Photography from the Met Collection," "American Quilts and Folk Art" and "Collecting the Arts of Mexico." The museum has about 30 ongoing exhibitions.
Running until Jan. 18, 2016, the "Grand Illusions: Staged Photography from the Met Collection" exhibit features a variety of photographs in different genres and period styles, showing how photographers manipulate the art of photography to run anywhere along the gamut of fiction and reality. On display until Aug. 7, 2016, the "American Quilts and Folk Art" exhibit features eight quilts, furniture and folk painting, two of which are by renowned 18th century American painter, Edward Hicks. A highlight of North American artistic achievement, the "Collecting the Arts of Mexico" exhibit features Emily Johnston de Forest's Mexican pottery collection that she donated to the museum in 1911. The exhibit runs until Aug. 7, 2016. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest museum of art in the country.
