This slide deck created by Don Undeen is from a MIDEA Connect webinar that took place May 1, 2013. Don Undeen is the Media Lab Manager at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York & spoke about how museums are in a great position to engage the maker and hacker communities.

In June of 2012, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in cooperation with MakerBot Industries, invited 30 digital artists into the museum to photograph collection sculptures, turn those images into digital 3D models, make new works based on those models, and print them on MakerBot's 3D printers. Undeen explained in the webinar how the Hackathon is a springboard for considering practical possibilities in any institution. He also discussed inexpensive software and hardware that opens up new possibilities for engagement with art lovers of all ages and abilities, and delved into the DIY spirit of cooperation.
