Art Explorer

Chicago Art Institute Posted by Hello

The Art Institute of Chicago has a new gadget. Art Explorer is an interactive website where visitors can search for art, save selections into scrapbooks with notes, and share the scrapbooks with friends and students.

Art Explorer focuses on the Art Institute's Impressionist and Postimpressionist collections, and includes original artworks, as well as additional resources such as texts, video clips, artist biographies, activities, and games. Try it here: http://www.artic.edu/artexplorer/.

If one searches for Georges Seurat, one will find eight pieces of art and 42 resources, including color mixing like Seurat did in his pointillist style, and a bibliography. Then, the searcher can save the items found in a new scrapbook. Adobe’s acrobat reader or a similar program is used to view and to save the scrapbook.
