With the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade, explore Paula Rego, who is known as "The artist who helped change the world." Through her series on abortion we see how art can be impactful and influential as a medium for social change and awareness. Rego’s work is a great example of art as activism.

Visit the links at the end to learn more about her work and this series. Also, while not currently on view you can see one Paula Rego’s pieces that’s in The Met’s collection by visiting our site.

Here’s a special post from The department. Here’s what they have to say about working this summer with a intern

____

We’ve been hosting one of The Met’s High School Summer Interns! Eli Diker, an aspiring photographer and rising high school senior, has joined the Department of Photograph Conservation for a five-week part-time paid internship focused on cataloguing a set of lantern slides for our Study Collection.⁣

He has been busy cataloguing 16 slides and companion catalogue cards, all featuring photographs from the late 1920s and early 1930s of 20th-century architecture, specifically several magnificent hotels including the Waldorf-Astoria, the Sherry-Netherland, the Panhellenic, the Villard Houses, and others.⁣

He has learned the process for creating a “composite” reflected and transmitted light image, and how to capture all of the inscriptions on the recto and verso of each slide. In addition, he’s participated in “handling” sessions where new staff members learn how best to handle photographs, slides, and other photographic materials, and he’s had a chance to tour the Photo Studio and to meet quite a few of the colleagues we interact with on a regular basis.⁣

Eli is a member of a lively cohort, and the Education Department has provided numerous learning and networking opportunities for this group. He will make his final presentation to our department this coming Friday morning, and to his cohort in the evening.⁣
