In honour of a storied legacy of cultural enrichment for New Yorkers and international communities alike, today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 151st Anniversary of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870 by a group of American citizens—businessmen and financiers as well as leading artists and thinkers of the day—who wanted to create a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. On this day in 1870, the museum was officially incorporated and soon after acquired its first work of art: a Roman sarcophagus.

The Met has come quite a long way from that first showing to become New York’s largest art museum, with a permanent collection of over 1.5 million objects, spanning over 5,000 years from nearly every corner of the globe.

A graffiti artwork by US street art legend JonOne that was on display in South Korea has been damaged by a couple who thought brushes and paint laid in front of the piece were for visitors' use.
The piece was painted in front of a live audience in Seoul in 2016 and the materials had since been left at the front of the artwork forming part of the exhibit.

"They thought they were allowed to do that as participatory art and made a mistake," the head of the exhibition in Seoul told Reuters news agency.

After staff spotted fresh brushstrokes CCTV footage identified the accidental vandals, a man and woman in their 20s.

The untitled piece is estimated to be worth about $500,000 (£360,000).
