Make the Time: 82nd & Fifth
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is running a series of short videos called “82nd & Fifth” that feature a curator talking about a work of art in the museum. The videos are beautifully produced with incredible photographic details of the works of art and often music accompanies the voice of the curator as he or she describes what is so remarkable about that particular object.
Pour yourself a cup of coffee and indulge in one or two or perhaps several of these videos by clicking here.
