My friend Noah Kalina made these beautiful video portraits of me inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2015.
The Met Museum
The Met was started around the mid-1860s.
That’s when the first idea for the Metropolitan Museum of Art came around.
The museum was started with this idea to bring art and culture to the unwashed masses.
I wouldn’t consider myself an unwashed mass. But I think that connecting with the art in the museum like I had is exactly what the founders intended.
The Met changed my life
Despite starting Museum Hack, I’ve never taken an art history class.
I’ve never really been someone who regularly goes to museums.
And yet now, I went to this place in Central Park. I had this experience and it infinitely changed my life.
So I think about that a lot.

These are some of my favorite portraits from Noah’s video.

Thanks to Noah Kalina for making this awesome video and the beautiful portraits.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is still my favorite museum in the world.
