This episode is best experienced in gallery 131 in The Sackler Wing. If you can’t visit the Museum in person, you might want to take a look at the Temple of Dendur (ca. 10 B.C.).

Sound artist, master storyteller, and MetLiveArts Artist in Residence Nate DiMeo—whose popular podcast, “The Memory Palace,” paints vivid, poetic pictures of moments in American history—will animate The Metropolitan Museum of Art throughout the 2016–17 season, interrogating the collection to draw out the revealing secrets and stories of the art.
