We're about halfway through the Metropolitan Museum's online and ever-changing exhibit, 82nd & Fifth, so it’s a good time to take a look. Taking its name from the Museum's address, 82nd & Fifth is a collaboration between 100 curators from different departments across the Museum and 11 photographers, to produce 2 minute videos presenting "100 works of art that changed the way they see the world." From the menu, browse all the entries at the site, explore them on a timeline from 2250 BCAD to 2011 AD, see the smiling faces of the contributing curators, or investigate an individual object. For example, start by watching episode #7, by curator Chris Lightfoot, on an Imperial Roman silver spoon and fork from the 3rd century A.D. Proceed to the full record for the object for a little more information and another image, then explore the episode's tags - daily life, decorative arts, or the name of the photographer who worked with Lightfoot - to find related episodes in 82nd & 5th.
