Art: Online & Offline

How Offline & Online Art Merged Into One

Most art enthusiasts have noticed a recent trend of seeing both offline art, and online art merging into one art form, selling point and community. This is evident in the still growing boom of most active art galleries around the world. Becoming accessible online to virtually anyone who may be interested in artwork, art supplies, artists, or even looking to purchase art or trying to find information. In order to see a lot of artwork in the past, art lovers would need to travel or visit a local gallery; and then they are still rather limited to what they can see.

Art museums and art galleries have also helped to merge the online/offline art worlds. Museums have embraced the World Wide Web to showcase, and display art and design to people all over the world. Art lovers now have the ability to display, purchase and even browse fine pieces of art, from all kinds of different art periods and from everywhere you could ever imagine! Take a trip to the Smithsonian. The world’s biggest museum & research center. It has 19 museums, 9 research centers & more than 140 affiliate museums all over the world. There is also the Museum of Fine Arts, at Florida State University, in Tallahassee Florida. Take a peek into the Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science, also in Tallahassee Florida. Tallahassee is the Florida State Capital, and has a deep history with art and design.

Smithsonian

It’s even possible to take a virtual tour inside the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

The best thing is, you do not have to be in Tallahassee or in Washington D.C. to visit these great art museums, and look at the world of art and design for yourself.
