The Making of 82nd & Fifth

Howard Silver, Media Producer for Special Projects, Digital Media

Posted: Thursday, November 14, 2013

«Each week this year, our web series 82nd & Fifth has brought you a little deeper into the world of the Met. In the close to ninety episodes we've posted so far, you've gotten to hear Museum curators talk about works of art that changed the way they see the world. We've produced a short video to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how our team of editors, producers, and photographers creates each two-minute episode.»

As we near the end of the series, I hope you'll explore the episodes we've posted so far and keep an eye out for new ones, which we'll post every Wednesday through the end of December.

    One of the main reasons I renewed my membership for 2014 is 82nd and Fifth. It is a hugely innovative idea and the episodes are equal to the concept. Please continue, through 82nd and Fifth, to 'share" the Metropolitan with us members for many years to come.

    I'll miss the weekly 82nd and Fifth. They have been wonderful, with helpful insights on approaching an artwork.

    I've looked forward to the weekly 82nd & Fifth episodes, always making time in my schedule to watch them, sometimes learning additional information about old friends and, more often, hearing about new areas I never knew about, but always enjoying the ride, my personal weekly mini-class. I'm so saddened now to read that the series is ending. I had always assumed, with the vast range and depth of the Met's collection, that 82nd and Fifth would run forever!

    I look forward every week to the new additions to 82nd and Fifth. I watch over and over the previous talks. I never get tired of viewing. This is truly a wonderful experience that has brought me closer to items I have known and new ones that I had not seen before. Please do not take the program off the internet. It has lasting value and every repeat brings newer insight, Thank you ever so much. Charlotte Ford
