Green light will illuminate the Empire State Building in New York on Monday November 18th, 2019 to celebrate the exhibition “Making Marvels: Science and Splendor at the Courts of Europe” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Approximately 170 Renaissance and early Baroque curiosities—including musical instruments, automata, rare gems, and silver furniture—from both the Met’s holdings and over 50 private collections from around the world are featured in the exhibition, which runs from November 25 through March 1. Highlights from the show include the “Dresden Green,” the largest natural green diamond in the world (on loan from Grünes Gewölbe in Dresden, Germany) and “The Draughtsman Writer,” the 18th-century automaton that inspired Brian Selznick’s 2007 book The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
