The tagline on the MetMedia website is "see the Museum in new ways." To live up to this claim, the Metropolitan Museum has gathered a variety of media, presented in an easy to navigate tabbed display. There's video - 513 short and long videos, arranged in chronological order. The newest video is of TEDxMET, October 19th, a day-long ticketed program that explored "signature buildings, singular stories, modern lives, and medieval beliefs, featuring speakers and performances from a range of disciplines." Videos can be browsed by Collection or location in the Museum that they are related to, such as the American Wing. Current available audio includes a 6-minute podcast of Curator Andrew Bolton discussing "PUNK: Chaos to Couture," that closed August 11, 2013. There's also a section of apps and games, such as Faking It - view historic photographs before and after retouching. The Kids' Zone provides more games for the younger set, such as "How Van Gogh Made His Mark," demonstrating how a few squiggles made by the artist can add up to a wheat field.
