Here’s news that might crease the corners of the art world in a good way.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is going where they never went before in terms of exposure. The grand old Met sits on the corner of 81st and Fifth Ave.
It found that home when Ulysses S. Grant was president. Recently, this 140-year-old cultural and social icon of New York City decided to put their foot in the 21st-century.
The Met introduced an app for people who love art and for folks who love to create. Forbes calls the app “simple and modest,” and that’s good news for art novices and new art lovers.
Artists around the globe who consider themselves “Met-a-holics” are pushing their data to the limit because they want to get a little closer to this grand old art dame. The pros are calling the new MET app a mobile museum for art lovers. But the Met doesn’t have the only social art app that opens its digital doors to people who live to create different forms of beauty.
