Antragsteller Chris Narine hatte sich mit seiner Freundin, seiner Schwägerin und seinem Schwager im Metropolitan Museum of Art verabredet. Alle waren eingeweiht und die Komplizen hängten ein von ihm gemaltes Bild, im passenden Outfit neben ihre Lieblingsbilder von Picasso.
Idee und Durchführung haben perfekt geklappt. Sehr niedlich!
“My brother and sister in law were able to then hang the painting I had made of myself proposing to Marybeth wearing the red polka dot dress next to a Picasso”
Story: In September we took a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As we walked the aisles of art from ancient times and contemporary alike, we happened upon a room of Picasso’s art (Marybeth’s favorite). My brother and sister in law were able to then hang the painting I had made of myself proposing to Marybeth wearing the red polka dot dress next to a Picasso. After I was given the signal I brought my girlfriend to the painting where she began immediately crying when she realized that the painting was of what was about to take place. I bent the knee and she nodded yes as tears traveled down her rosy cheeks. Her cousin, who had been undercover waiting for them to arrive at the museum, beautifully documented the moment through her photography. Soon after I rose back to my feet, we were greeted by a less than happy guard who told us to remove the painting from the wall and suggested that we leave. After a few more quick photos, we left the building and the rest is history or should I say…art history.
I knew she’d be wearing that dress because I had her mom buy it a few weeks in advance for her and then convinced her to wear it that day. Also I had asked a few other small museums for permission to do this and none obliged so I just said f it and decided I just do it at the biggest museum I could think of and ask for forgiveness rather than permission.
She may not have literally said "yes" but she did uncontrollably sob…so yeah. I love her. Thank you to @shaun1stofhisname @mourys @framing_the_chaos we may end up banned from the met but it was worth it. (Also no big deal but now I can say my art has been hung in the met next to a Picasso) #oncloudnarine [ To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org ]
