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.
Each avatar from the “treasure chest” takes visitors on a different adventure. The coyote teaches about sculpture; the Headless Horseman, about landscape; and the ballerina, about light. Every story takes place in five sequential galleries—each hosting either a puzzle or an artist-match game. The five gallery topics always follow the same order—media, technique, design, purpose, and culture.
