The Costume Institute’s ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ Ranks Third Among Most-Visited Exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Costume Institute’s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” has passed the one-million visitor mark.
In doing so, the show now is the Costume Institute’s most visited and the third most visited for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Catholic-themed fashion extravaganza knocked out “The Vatican Collections,“ which was held in 1983, in the third-place slot. It is now just behind “Mona Lisa,” a 1963 show and “Treasures of Tutankhamun” from 1978. King Tut still reigns supreme for the Fifth Avenue museum with more than 1.36 million visitors.
But Heavenly Bodies may gain ground since it will continue to be on view at The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters through Oct. 8. Made possible through the support of Christine and Stephen A. Schwarzman, and Versace, the show is meant to be a museum journey examining how the Catholic Church has inspired legions of designers. Catholicism — past, present and future — was considered to be a delicate (and exhaustive) subject to tackle. That may be more true now than when it opened in early May, given last week’s report of decades of alleged child sex abuse by more than 300 priests in Pennsylvania.
The Costume Institute wasn’t the only record breaker

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Pierpaolo Piccioli, Caroline Kennedy Help The Met Unveil ‘Heavenly Bodies’ at the Costume Institute

CCD AT THE MET: Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, Archbishop of New York, cut straight to the chase in his remarks at Monday’s opening of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
“You may be asking, ‘What’s the church doing here? Why is the church part of all this?’ You may be asking, ‘What’s the Cardinal Archbishop of New York?’ I asked that when I was first invited a couple of months ago,” he said. “It’s because the church and the Catholic imagination are all about three things: truth, goodness and beauty. That’s why we have great schools and universities to teach the truth. That’s why we love to serve the poor to do good. And that’s why we’re into things such as art, poetry, music, liturgy and, yes, even fashion, to thank God for the gift of beauty.”
Dolan went on to thank Blackstone founder Stephen A. Schwarzman and his wife Christine (the exhibition’s underwriter with Versace) for their generosity to inner-city schools, Catholic charities and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. “In the Catholic imagination, the truth, beauty and goodness of God is reflected all over the place, even in fashion,” he said.
Schwarzman said he and his wife

The Costume Institute’s ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ to Be Previewed in Rome Next Month

WHEN IN ROME: The opening of the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute is still a few months away, but organizers will stage a press preview Feb. 26 in Rome. The Met’s deputy director Carrie Rebora Barratt, The Costume Institute’s curator in charge Andrew Bolton, Anna Wintour and His Eminence Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi will be on hand for the warm-up event at Galleria Colonna.
The location of the preview in Italy is a spectacle in itself. The Roman Baroque Galleria Colonna was commissioned in the mid-1600s by Cardinal Girolamo I Colonna and his nephew, Lorenzo Onofrio Colonna. It was inaugurated by Onofrio’s son, Philip II, in 1700. The architect Antonio del Grande handled the original project, and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Paolo Schor and Carlo Fontana enhanced it in the last decade of the 1600s.
The Costume Institute’s main event bows to the public in New York on May 10 and will run through Oct. 8. “Heavenly Bodies” will be housed in two locations — The Met’s Fifth Avenue museum and the Met Cloisters. “Heavenly Bodies” will juxtapose fashion and masterworks of religious art so that patrons will consider fashion’s ongoing engagement with the

Seven Steps To Heavenly Chipping

Seven Steps To Heavenly Chipping


Q What does the loft of the club dictate when chipping?You would answerA Heightand you would be WRONG. What you need to know is why you are wrong and what the loft of the club does dictate when chipping, and reading this book will teach you this and much more. This book will help you toUnderstand exactly what a chip is as most golfersmisunderstand this shot and visualise it incorrectly, thus reducing the chances of playing it well. A chip shot is one from just off the green, where you need to fly the ball over an obstacle such as: Some fairwayA bunkerA hump or hollowA tier on a greenA water hazardYou will learn the Seven vital steps that you must repeat for you to hit great chip shots time after time. There are four different techniques that this book covers which areStandard Chip – a standard chip is a shotthat has the designated amount of energy the club’s loft dictates. We are aiming to strike the ball with the true loft of the club without changing the amount of energy that each club produces to alter the shot. In other words, we are not going to de-loft or open the face at set-up or impact for this chip. The ball will not fly very high nor will it come out low and fast. This chip has a standard flight and roll which is dictated by the club’s loft alone. A 7-iron will fly lower and run longer than a pitching wedge. Running/High Energy Chip – This chip or technique is designed to give the ball a lot more energy than the loft of the club would impart on its own. Using a pitching wedge for this technique will ensure the ball will run as much as it would do if you used a 7-iron and employed the technique for a standard chip. Soft Landing Chip -It has a soft flightLands softly on the greenHas a gentle low energy release towards the holeWhen you have been told to make a putting stroke for your chip, this is the shot you are executing. This shot would normally be used when you have a very fast downhill chip and you need to carry the fringe or you have very little green betwee

‘The League,’ Season 6, Episode 7 Recap: The Heavenly Fouler

Kicking off this episode in front of the TV, the gang is at Andre’s chatting about Ellie attending Sunday school. Kevin says it’s because they want her to have some semblance of morals and Jenny just keeps it real by saying that she can watch the game without interruptions now. Quality parenting, FTW. Taco interrupts the convo with MAJOR TacoCorp news: someone has stolen his walkman with a recording of all the EBDb information on it. GREAT ODIN’S RAVEN.

Andre rescues a cat, which he calls “Milady.” The kitty causes everyone to bite their tongues at the plethora of pussy jokes suddenly waiting to be thrown out there. I don’t even feel bad for Andre anymore. Homeboy does it to himself. Jenny takes the possibility of pussy wordplay to the next level by proposing that the first person to crack under the hilarity and make a pussy play has to trade their best running back. Let the games begin.

Because apparently the McArthur’s are always having health issues, Jenny’s the one visiting her doctor this time around. She’s a little backed up in the bowels and as such, the doc gives her a “stool kit.” For three days, Jenny’s got to take samples of her poop and scoop them up, put them in baggies, and freeze ’em. Gives new meaning to the word “fudgsicle.” Yeah.. you already know where this is going.

At Gibson’s, as always, Pete’s debuting a new chick named Penny, played by Anna Camp. Penny runs a pet grooming company that specializes in “cattitude,” which is a great bonding point with Andre. After she leaves, Andre tells the guys of an upcoming photo shoot he has with Milady. Pete, Kevin, and Taco are literally squirming as they skirt around the massive pussy… I mean, elephant… in the room. Andre asks Kevin if he can do the shoot at his house because Kevin has the play set and Kevin happily agrees. Kevin also convinces Pete to get Penny to give Milady some extra “cattitude.” Pete obliges and Penny is super excited at the prospect of getting to groom Andre’s cat for the shoot. Andre has promised to refer her to all of his wealthy, doctor friends if all goes well. Unaware that the whole thing is a prank, Penny shares her excitement with Pete and, in a shocking twist, we see Pete visualize some discomfort at being a dick. GASP.

pete kevin and taco

Reverting back to Jenny and her situation for a hot second, she is extremely disgusted by having to freeze her excrement. That disgust, however, pales in comparison to her disgust for Ellie’s claims that she and Kevin are worshipping false idols. As per her new Sunday school teachings, Ellie is regarding Jenny and Kevin’s affection for the Shiva as something that will send them to Hell. I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, Ellie, but that ship has long since sailed for your proud parents. So take your Sunday school prayers and get out of Jenny’s face because the Shiva ain’t going nowhere.

Anyway, Kevin and Taco persuade an unsure Pete to go through with the prank and Kevin heads to play basketball. While there, he runs into his priest. Kevin’s priest, played by the adorable Jerry O’Connell, whoops his ass on the court – literally. The “heavenly fouler,” as Andre so aptly calls him, even goes so far that he gives Kevin a black eye. I’d feel bad but Kevin has an extremely punchable face so the bruise fits.

Ellie’s clearly taking notes from the mother of Carrie in this episode because homegirl is going full-fledged batshit and biblical. After reciting some Bible verses at, not to, her parents, Pete, and, Andre, she storms out of the room just before the whole gang recites some “Hail Shivas.” Taco interrupts the Shiva-ing to reveal the EBDb information that was on the walkman – one tidbit of which includes a lesbian encounter that Jenny had with a girl on her field hockey team back in the day. Kevin is not enthused about the secret keeping and runs to the kitchen to get ice for his priest-induced shiner. He grabs one of Jenny’s frozen poop bags to use and Jenny doesn’t have the heart to tell him that it’s not what he thinks it is.

Kevin plays basketball with the priest again and the fouling continues. Irritated, Kevin fouls right back and slams the priest in the face. The priest pulls the “I’m a man of God!” card and clutches his temple. Kevin tries to make amends by offering the priest an ice pack. Shit hits the face, I mean, the fan… hell, I mean the face AND the fan, when the “ice pack” starts leaking actual crap on the priest’s face. What’d I say before? We knew something like this would happen. Oh Kevin.

priest jerry oconnell

Taco goes into a Chinese convenience store, intent on finding his lost walkman and in rustling around the various food items, the owner screams at him. The owner then chases Taco out of the store and to escape, Taco hops into the nearest dumpster. The dumpster happens to have the walkman in it, EBDb information and all, and all is right with the world according to Taco.

At the photo shoot for Andre, Penny arrives with Milady and the cat is straight-up rachet. Decked out in tattoos (including one of Andre’s face), a hat, and paw sleeves, Andre’s pussy is far from camera-ready. Andre is furious and vows to poorly review Penny on Yelp, Penny is distraught, and, yet again, another one of Pete’s flings comes to a crashing, burning halt. Kevin and Jenny’s priest shows up with Ellie in tow because Taco failed to pick her up, as he was in the dumpster. Priest Jerry O’Connell calls out Kevin and Jenny for worshipping a pagan idol called Shiva and, desperate to explain, the two take him into the garage to show him the trophy. There they find Taco bathing in an inflatable pool and they only infuriate the priest more. The icing on the cake comes when the priest opens the cabinet that the Shiva is supposed to be in only to get attacked by Milady who was lurking inside. The priest leaves angrily, condemning them all to hell, and Taco gets the last word of the day with a perfectly timed pussy joke.

Hail to the Shiva.

THINGS TO NOTE:

  • “We’re on the verge of a Mark Cuban missile crisis.”
  • “Yeah, with the hair all over the place, it makes her look way older.”
  • Feces fort.
  • Andre’s use of Yelp.
