On Wednesday March 25, New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art launched The Artist Project, a long awaited web series featuring 100 Artists and works of art that spark their imaginations. Many would expect such a project from one of the cities great "contemporary" museums. However the Met, one of New York City's great historical art museums, strives for the youthful contemporary efforts of a strong Internet presence and social media participation-- The Artist Project is a perfect example of it's web efforts. Now the public has the ability to connect with today's most relevant contemporary artists via the artist's own fascination in a particular traditional historical work. The Artist Project is a very savvy way of bridging the old with the new, of delving further into the minds of artists*** we love and the museum's fine works.
