Meet Me at Midnight Welcome to Meet Me at Midnight, an interactive adventure set in the Smithsonian American Art Museum (American Art). Our goal is to introduce youngsters to American art and artists using examples from our collection. We also aim to teach art terms and concepts in a fun, game-based setting.
