Museum of the Moving Image
In its own words, "The American Museum of the Moving Image tells
the story of the innovation and artistry that make the moving
image the most powerful artistic and cultural influence of the
twentieth century. The Museum houses the nation's most important
collection of motion picture and television artifacts. It presents
retrospective film series, often accompanied by discussions with
the filmmakers themselves, and digital media seminars with industry
pioneers. Education programs for junior high school and high school
students connect moving image media with the study of the humanities
and sciences. Exhibitions elegantly illustrate how the art and
the craft of moving image making are inseparable."
