The Life of Art

Originally featured in the Scout Report on 8-08-2014, this interactive exhibit from the Getty Museum continues to provide an interesting way to learn and think about the creation and movement of different art objects. When some look at art, they might just see a beautiful vase or a well-done etching of a street scene from nineteenth-century Salamanca. But look closely: every work of art reveals something about the world in which it was made, from ancient Egypt to twenty-first century Detroit. This rather engaging interactive exhibit from the Getty Museum invites visitors to look at four items from this collection for just such a close look. The items here include a silver fountain, a wall light, a side chair, and a lidded bowl. Each item will give visitors the opportunity to learn about a unique period in human history by looking at the various tools and technologies used to create it. Additionally, curious parties can view a collection of links that will encourage further exploration.
