Lauren's curator insight, August 1, 2013 6:21 PM

Art Project is a great resource that allows students to access famous works of art from all over the world. Visitors can explore seventeen museums in the same way that Google street view allows user to view neighborhoods. This digital tour also allows visitors to save art in a folder that they can return to view at a later time. Some collections have information and video narrated by museum curators.

 

Art Project is a great way to generate interest in the art world as well as expose students to different forms of art. This would be a good place for students to begin their Art History project as it allows them to explore different artists, periods, works, and collections.

Voar Travel's curator insight, December 2, 2014 9:08 AM
Gaze your mortal eyes upon the greatness that is the Louvre. Inside are thousands of art pieces, some made by Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and many more. Some of the most famous pieces are the Mona Lisa and Venus di Milo. I personally thought the Mona Lisa was a gigantic disappointment, but the fact that Leonardo Da Vinci painted and touched it with his own two magnificent hands gives it credit. This museum could be a small country on its own, give yourself a few hours to get through everything. (Chae Chung)

Olivier Hanotte's curator insight, January 8, 2014 10:29 AM

These two extracts are  from Darwin's  book ''The variation of animals and‘ plants under domestication (volume 1). I think they are a good summary of what livestock adaptation is about: fuelled by its 'intrinsic' diversity and shaped by nature and human

 

’ I have often speculated on the probable cause through which each separate district in Great Britain came to possess in former times its own peculiar breed of cattle…..’’

 

‘’… I conclude that, although slight differences in the nature of the climate, food, etc., as well as changed habits of life, aided by correlation of growth, and the occasional appearance from unknown causes of considerable deviations of structure, have all probably played their parts; yet the occasional preservation in each district of those individual animals which were more valued by each owner has perhaps been even more effective in the production of the several British breeds…’’
