A series of videos focused on contemporary artists provided by the YouTube channel of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Artist Project is a 2015 online series in which we give artists an opportunity to respond to our encyclopedic collection.
Beginning March 2015, for one year, we will invite 100 artists—local, national, and global—to choose individual works of art and galleries that spark their imaginations. In this online series, artists reflect on what art is, what inspires them across 5,000 years of art, and in so doing, they reveal the power of a museum and The Met. Their unique and passionate ways of seeing and experiencing art encourage all museum visitors to look in a personal way.
Over the course of five seasons, The Artist Project will share the perspectives of 100 artists with the public, telling us what they see when they look at The Met. Sign up for email announcements so you never miss an episode.
