We Took the Met

Sage, TAG Member

Posted: Friday, June 12, 2015

All of the hype around last Friday's Teens Take the Met event led to an exciting turnout of 2,044 teens showing up for the fun! That night, I chose to go to three of the most exciting areas: the temporary-tattoo parlor in Carson Family Hall, the tote bag–decorating stations in the Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court, and a number of activities in The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing.

Fashion Moving Forward

Sage, TAG Member

Posted: Friday, December 5, 2014

It's taken me years to admit, but I have an addiction to all things Japanese. At the impressionable age of five, my father showed me my first Godzilla movie; several King Ghidorah action figures, three hundred Pokémon cards, and fourteen Studio Ghibli films later, I've not only converted my calculus notebook into a journal in which I try to memorize Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji, but I've come to terms with the extent of my obsession. As a result, it was practically inevitable that I found myself roaming through the Met's exhibition Kimono: A Modern History, on view through January 19, 2015. Featuring a range of kimonos from the eighteenth century to the present day, it fed right into my interests.

Ink Art's Merging of the Old and the New

Emily Z., TAG Member; Sage, TAG Member; and Genevieve, TAG Member

Posted: Tuesday, January 21, 2014

What Does One Do with a Wall Full of Feathers?

Sage, TAG Member

Posted: Thursday, October 31, 2013

Many questions surround the beautiful feather panels, created between about 600 and 1000 by the Wari peoples of Peru, that are currently on view in the exhibition Feathered Walls: Hangings from Ancient Peru. The simplistic juxtapositions of color and painstaking care put into them tantalize the mind and make one wonder what purpose the panels served.

Chodhisone: Our 3D Creation in Plastic

Sage, TAG Member; and Katy, Teen Program Participant

Posted: Wednesday, October 16, 2013

The idea for our 3D sculpture came together after taking pictures of a Chinese chimera and a bodhisattva from the Asian Art galleries, along with Ritual Seat for a Noble (Osa' osa), currently on view in the Met's Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas galleries. From there, we took each of the photos and stitched them together using 3D printing software.
