Friday Fictioneers — Art History

img_1527It just may have been the most beautiful building she’d ever seen. Standing on the mezzanine level looking down at the Great Hall, Annie was brought to tears.

She never could have imagined being in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but here she was. Her friends back home in the small, upstate town laughed at her when she said she wanted to study art history. Even her father questioned her about the kind of future she would have.

But here she was, with a full scholarship in art history from Columbia, standing in the Met.

    Awwww! Love it, love it, love it! The building’s fabulous, and the art displayed is astonishing. I’ve only seen it on line, but the Met is one of the few things that makes me want to visit the USA. Annie’s response to being there is very moving. That’s a very well written story, Fandango.

    A wonderful story about doing what you love to do instead of focussing on the money. She’s lucky to be able to combine both, love of the art and getting paid for it.
