The Metropolitan Museum of Art Key Developments

The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Bruker Corporation Announce 10-Year Partnership in the Field of Cultural Heritage Science

The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) and Bruker Corporation announced a 10-year partnership to advance novel analytical technologies and methods in the field of cultural heritage science even further. This partnership builds upon and expands a long history of collaboration that has yielded considerable progress and results: among them, the introduction of the first Open Architecture Raman Microscope, the application of Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) to the identification of organic colorants, the development of Laser Ablation SERS, and just recently, the use of Macro Area Scanning XRF for the study of paintings. With this new ambitious partnership, the companies will focus on advanced mass spectrometry instrumentation, as well as x-ray diffraction, and Raman imaging, adding technology to the impressive array of scientific tools already in place at The Met. The new technologies will enable The Met's scientists to advance scholarship in cultural heritage science and solve the most challenging conservation problems. As part of this collaboration, Bruker will also provide instrumentation and technical expertise for the Network Initiative for Conservation Science (NICS), the new program established by The Met to support research at other museums in New York City. As many of these museums lack the scientific resources to perform in-depth chemical and elemental analysis, Bruker portable infrared, Raman, and x-ray fluorescence instrumentation operated by Met scientists will play an essential role in establishing a mobile laboratory and in building a distributed scientific network benefitting all cultural heritage institutions in the city of New York.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Names Keith L. Prewitt as Chief Security Officer

Daniel H. Weiss, President and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, announced that Keith L. Prewitt has been appointed to the role of Chief Security Officer for the Museum. Mr. Prewitt is presently Vice President for Cable Security and Facilities at Comcast Corporation, where he oversees the development and implementation of security and risk-management practices, while setting the strategic vision for the organization in coordination with other key functions within company. Before joining Comcast Corporation, Mr. Prewitt served as President of Harvard Enterprise Risk Solutions, LLC, and Harvard Protection Services, LLC, where he was responsible for the company’s strategic leadership and served as the internal and external point of contact for industry expertise and knowledge regarding the markets for risk management, strategic security consultation, and protection services. Prior to his work there, Mr. Prewitt served 30 years with the United States Secret Service, including four years as the agency’s Deputy Director. In that role, he oversaw the senior executive team and served as the agency’s Chief Operations Officer, managing the daily operations of a workforce numbering approximately 7,000, a $1.5 billion budget, and related activities. At The Met, Mr. Prewitt will be joining the senior leadership team and will be responsible for overseeing security operations and strategy at the Museum’s three locations. Mr. Prewitt will start at the Museum in September and is preceded by John Barelli, who retired in 2016 after 30 years as Chief Security Officer.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Appoints Daniel Weiss as Chief Executive Officer to Replace Thomas Campbell

And whoever replaces the outgoing director and CEO, British tapestries expert Thomas Campbell, will report to Weiss, rather than the other way round.
