Teens Take The Met! has been held at the Met twice a year since 2014. The event has brought together more than 30,000 of today’s youth. Due to the temporary closing of the museum as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum has looked for new ways to keep visitors virtually engaged. Through this event, teens will be encouraged to stay active, and will gain effective and entertaining virtual experiences.
Virtual Teens Take The Met! accompanies the Met Museum’s current collection of online materials, live and interactive programming, performances, and conversations with many of New York City’s curators, educators, and artists, as well as the #MetAnywhere social media initiatives.
