Using great works of art and selected passages from literature, this program helps students understand why the history of art is the history of civilization. Students trace people's continuing efforts to express themselves and their concepts of God, life, beauty, joy, order and identity through art. Based on the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Centennial Exhibition, "Masterpieces of Fifty Centuries."

The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City, colloquially "the Met", is the largest art museum in the United States. With 7.06 million visitors to its three locations in 2016, it was the third most visited art museum in the world, and the fifth most visited museum of any kind.
