Meet Me At The Met: The Museum as Your Playground
Find your inner artist! This is a curated cultural adventure for "iPhone auteurs" who want to get in the zone and make things. Let’s experiment.
We start the activity at the MET on 5th Avenue where you engage in a hands-on photo-art activity while interacting with famous artwork -- with your smartphone as a tool for reimagining and creating your own original mini-masterpieces.
Using your imagination and digital tools, you record, select, and edit images shot in the museum for photo stories, which include photo collages (digital art) and more. Photos are uploaded either to social media accounts for sharing and/or printed in books (via Parabo Press, Snapfish, or Adorama Books), post experience.
For the session Roberta Fineberg, artist-photographer and founder of 99Prints online art site curates the assignment, and guides you through a self-discovery process - providing helpful feedback and prompting discussion around what we see, i.e. composition, color, design, storytelling, and personal vision. By the end of it, you are encouraged to ask questions about and respond to masterful works to communicate your vision and tell your own stories, digitally.
The suggested admission to the museum is 25.00. The admission price to The Met is included in the session. In addition your ticket gains you same-day entry to the nearby Met Breuer and The Cloisters in Uptown Manhattan.
