Thanks to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's cat
art Chrome plug-in. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's
media lab has unveiled an extension for Google Chrome called "Meow Met,"
which shows a work of art featuring a cat from the museum's collection every
time a new browser tab is opened. Designed by Emily McAllister, the
extension features pieces by famous artists such as Mary Cassatt, Édouard
Manet, Rembrandt, John Singer Sargent, and Walker Evans. The plug-in is
the latest example of how museums have taken to curating cat art to attract
millennial visitors. The Brooklyn Museum presented an exhibit about cats in
ancient Egypt while Japan Society put on a show about the history of cats in
Japanese art, and most famously, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis started
a cat video festival that has toured the country. (h/t Hyperallergic)
