The Web continues to facilitate the exchange and dissemination of creative and innovative artistic collaborations, and the BOOK project is definitely one of those projects worth a look. During 36 weeks, a sketchbook was sent in random order among four artists. Two of these artists were in Brooklyn, and two of them were in Belfast. The process started in June 2003, and by the time the project was...
Dallas Museum of Art

Organized in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art has continued to grown by leaps and bounds since its humble beginnings.

The collections page is a good place to start perusing...

National Gallery of Art: Videos & Podcasts

The National Gallery of Art is one of America's finest treasures and they continue to offer a host of new resources for people who can visit the museum in person and those who cannot.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is home to 34,678 objects. As the museum explains, that means that if all of SFMOMA's works were on display at once, one would have to walk 121.3 miles to view each piece. In response to this need, SFMOMA has created the delightful and interactive Send Me SFMOMA, an SMS service that invites art lovers to explore the musuem's collection with a single...
The Art Institute of Chicago: Collection

In October 2018, the Art Institute of Chicago launched their newly redesigned website. As part of this redesign, the museum has also released over 52,000 images in the public domain from its digital archive, making them freely available under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. This means that educators, students, and art lovers can now download high-quality JPEGs of works such as Georges...
Benaki Museum: Museum From Home

One upside to many museums closing their doors in response to the COVID-19 pandemic is that virtual exhibits are surging in popularity. Inviting visitors to #MuseumFromHome, the Benaki Museum (physically located in Athens, Greece) offers wonderful virtual explorations of many of their campuses and galleries. At the link above, visitors can select an exhibit or collection of interest (perhaps you...

Here, readers will find works currently in storage, or otherwise not on view, as well as artworks held at any of the locations, including the Scottish National...

Once downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play, users have options to customize DailyArt to use any of its 16 languages and select a time of day (morning, afternoon, or evening) to get notified about content....
Google Arts & Culture: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation

Even as many museums around the world reopen with adaptations for the COVID-19 pandemic, not everyone is able or willing to visit in person. That makes this overview of New York's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, provided by Google Arts & Culture (previously featured in the 07-19-2019 Scout Report), extra handy for armchair travelers. Visitors can view more than 200 artworks inside the museum by...
