About the Metropolitan Museum’s The Artist Project

Steven Saslow is a consultant and former senior executive at the Blackstone Group, where he was instrumental in developing the firm’s first hedge fund. Since retiring from Blackstone in 2007, Steven Saslow has lent his support to various galleries in the New York area and is a sustaining member of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has served as a beacon in the global arts community for over 145 years. As part of its foundational mission to bring fine arts to the general public, the Metropolitan Museum recently launched The Artist Project, an all-new digital series.

Designed to lift the veil behind artistic inspiration, The Artist Project will bring together more than 100 local, national, and international artists to share their reflections on select Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibitions, ranging from timeless classics and modern installations.

The Artist Project, which kicked off in March 2015, will run for five seasons over the course of a year, providing museum visitors a more personal view of art, what makes it, and why it continues to hold special importance in daily life.
