A Daily Lift – January 20, 2021

Good Morning,


I hope that you are doing well!


Our “lifts” for today:

From Karen Brann (Faculty Affairs)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Verizon launched The Met Unframed, an immersive virtual art and gaming experience with enhancements powered by Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband and featuring more than a dozen one-of-a-kind digitally rendered galleries and nearly 50 works of art from across The Met’s vast collection. At a time when access to one of the world’s greatest art collections is limited, The Met Unframed brings a creatively reimagined Met experience to people wherever they are. (Note: This is a mobile phone only experience)


From Dr. Rob Carpick (MEAM)

The Penn Museum launched a new exhibit, “Invisible Beauty: The Art of Archaeological Science”. “From metallurgical textures to colorful crystals, get ready to experience an unseen world so astoundingly beautiful, it inspires endless wonder.”  Admission is free for Penn faculty, staff, and students.
