Ciwt thinks this upcoming Metropolitan Museum project sounds very worthwhile. Maybe you too?
The link to the video above is here, and the Met's description of the series is below.
Ever since it was founded in 1870, The Metropolitan Museum of Art has been a place where artists come to gain inspiration from works of art from their own time and place, and also from across time and cultures.
Beginning on March 25, the Museum will launch The Artist Project, a new online photography/video series in which we give artists an opportunity to respond to our encyclopedic collection.
For one year, we will invite one hundred artists—local, national, and global—to choose individual works of art or galleries that spark their imaginations. The artists will reflect on what art is and what inspires them from across five thousand years of art at the Met.
Episodes will be released over the course of five seasons, and these artists' unique and passionate ways of seeing and experiencing art will encourage all Museum visitors to look in a personal way.
