My Modern Met was formed in May, 2008 to create one big city that celebrates creative ideas. Our mission is to promote a positive culture by spotlighting the best sides of humanity—from the lighthearted and fun to the thought-provoking and enlightening. Today, we receive an average of 3 million visitors coming to our site each month, looking for articles on art, design, photography, architecture, technology, environmental issues, and inspiring stories.
While exposing people to incredible artwork or uplifting stories, we’re also helping artists’ careers and providing a platform for inspiring individuals along the way. Nothing brings us greater joy than hearing about how a person’s life has somehow changed after being featured on My Modern Met.
With The Arts, we feature and interview artists that are on the pulse of contemporary art. They continuously push the boundaries of how we think, and often times, the message in their artworks are more powerful than words could ever be.
With Inspiring Stories, we shine the spotlight on ordinary people who perform extraordinary deeds. It’s these people who restore our faith in humanity and inspire us to become better individuals.
