New Smarthistory videos featuring two Metropolitan Museum curators

We are excited to announce that Smarthistory has published six new videos co-created with curators from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. These videos help to fill critical gaps in our coverage of the art of the Pacific Islands and the art of the ancient Maya.

We want to thank The Metropolitan Museum of Art for their generosity!
