The Met is a global leader in the non-profit, arts and museum space. Their mission is not simply to exhibit the visual achievement of all cultures, but to demonstrate why these objects are relevant to our lives. We now live in a time of shifting demographics, changing social behavior, and groundbreaking technology, all of which present significant opportunities to be more relevant to more people. Making connections is a key principle to activating any experience at The Met, including their brand identity.
With a business that’s driven by visitor attendance and patron engagement, The Met is exploring the expansion of their space and program to include a new Augmented Reality initiative. The AR program is under development and will launch with its own wing or separate location space. This initiative is in line with the museum leadership’s goals to expand the reach and relevance of the museum to the broadest, most diverse global audience, and transform the dispassionate museumgoer into a captivated and engaged visitor. AR at The Met will harness the power of emerging tech in art to create immersive and engaging experiences.
