Featured Projects

Strike a pose

Earprint is thrilled to announce the debut of Viewpoints: Body Language,  a unique multimedia tour of 20 sculptures from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection available on the web, the Met's audioguide, and on YouTube. Our content is designed to inspire visitors to make a physical, experiential connection between the sculpture they are looking at and their own bodies. Storytellers include museum voices as well as outside experts with unique perspectives on body language, such as neuroscientists, actors, dancers, and musicians. The tour includes commentary in American Sign Language by a deaf museum educator. Here's what visitors are saying:
