Story
Tagline
My Modern Met is the big city that celebrates creative ideas.
Introduction
We started My Modern Met back in May 2008 because we wanted to create one big city where we could celebrate creative ideas. We aim to promote a positive culture by spotlighting the best sides of humanity—from the lighthearted and fun to the thought-provoking and enlightening. Today, we get an average of 3 million visitors coming to our site each month, looking for articles on art, design, photography, architecture, technology, environmental issues, and inspiring stories. 

We're most proud of the fact that we're not just exposing new people to incredible artwork or uplifting stories, but we're also helping artists' careers and providing a platform for inspiring individuals along the way. Nothing brings us greater joy than hearing about how a person’s life has somehow changed after being featured on My Modern Met.

With The Arts, we feature and interview artists that are on the pulse of contemporary art. They continuously push the boundaries of how we think, and often times, the message in their artworks are more powerful than words could ever be.

With Inspiring Stories, we shine the spotlight on ordinary people who perform extraordinary deeds. It’s these people who restore our faith in humanity and inspire us to become better individuals.
