New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met) recently announced the commencement of its long-postponed renovation after receiving a $125 million donation from a wealthy Chinese American couple.

“No surprise”: The donation, which came from longtime Met trustee Oscar Tang and his wife, Agnes Hsu-Tang, was the largest donation that the museum has ever received in its 151-year history, reported the New York Times.
