NEW YORK, NY.- The next edition of NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN's weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase for the tri-state area, will feature the program's co-host and New York Emmy winner Philippe de Montebello, who is also Director Emeritus of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, interviewing his successor at the museum, Thomas P. Campbell, the current Director and CEO. This interview will air on Thursday, January 16 at 8 p.m. on THIRTEEN, and will be available to national audiences for streaming on NYC-ARTS.org.

In a virtually unprecedented interview, de Montebello and Campbell discuss the Met's role in a global world, the use of technology in reaching the museum's audiences (real and virtual), the revitalization of gallery spaces to enhance the museum-going experience, and new public programs initiatives which bring performing into the exhibition halls.

Additionally, de Montebello and Campbell discuss the shift in how people currently experience art. "You know, in this sarcophagus world a museum is a place of reflection, a place of self-discovery, you know, the quiet car of the world," explains Campbell. "And I have every intention of sustaining that as long as I can."

De Montebello served as director of the Met from 1977-2009. On his retirement he was both the longest serving director in the institution's history, and the longest-serving director of any major art museum in the world. Campbell is currently in his fifth year at the helm of the museum, pursuing an agenda for the Met that focuses on scholarship and accessibility. Prior to his appointment he was a curator in the Met's Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts for 14 years, specializing in tapestries.

NYC-ARTS is a production of THIRTEEN in association with WNET, one of America's most prolific and respected public media providers.
