Metropolitan Museum T-Shirt
 
 
The MET Experience T-Shirt features the Metropolitan Museum of Art logo along with the text, "5000 Years of Art" printed on the chest. A felt button with the iconic "M" printed in the middle (resembling the colored metal buttons given to visitors of the MET) is attached to the collar of the T-shirt, offset from the middle as one might wear the actual metal button. The T-shirt, logo, and button are available in a variety of different colors and combinations.
 
Visitors of the museum are given the opportunity to take home particular experiences of the museum through various books, posters, accessories, and other items available in the gift shop. One of the most subtle yet memorable experiences, however, is the iconic metal button that the MET distributes to its visitors. Many of these buttons are donated back to the MET, but many are kept as souvenirs. With the MET Experience T-Shirt, visitors will have the chance to take home the experience of visiting the museum and relive that experience with each wearing of this unique and attention-getting shirt.
 
In addition to the MET, I have begun to do similar work for other museums including the Whitney, MoMA, New Museum, Guggenheim, Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich and many others.
