«Today we launch a new section of the Met's website: The Met Around the World. The work of the Metropolitan Museum reflects the global scope of its collections and extends across the world through a variety of initiatives and programs including exhibitions, excavations, fellowships, professional exchanges, conservation projects, and traveling works of art. All these activities are now consolidated here to allow you to search them by location or category.»
This new section is a great resource for understanding the Museum's global impact and I hope you enjoy exploring its rich content. Look for its companion section The Met Across America in 2012.
