The Metropolitan Museum of art is tapping into the curatorial wisdom of the public. The Met has set up a web project called Steve where you can register for free to help with the tagging of the museum’s works of art that are displayed online.

Please let us know what you seeâ€”in your own words. You may find yourself gazing upon art you haven’t looked at before or viewing an object in a brand new way. The more you tag, the richer your experience will be, and ultimately, the more you will be helping the Museum continue to provide its public with the exceptional caliber of online programming it has come to expect and enjoy.
