Technology: Deepening the experience of art

Technology has tremendous importance at the Baltimore Museum of Art in its power to access vast reservoirs of information instantly, and its ability to teach and to amaze.

This year, in a wonderful addition to the Baltimore Museum of Art's Web site, Matisse for Kids employs the artist's schnauzer, Raoudi, to guide children through the bright, bold world of Henri Matisse.

The Baltimore Museum of Art also partnered with arts organizations throughout the state to launch Maryland Art Source, a Web site that offers a way to learn about Maryland artists and their work, featuring links to online collections and library catalogues.

The immensely popular virtual tour of the Cone sisters' apartments has been given additional depth by the Imaging Research Center at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in consultation with the Museum's staff. Using touch screens, viewers can now open drawers and study drawings, unfold and read letters, or page through Cone journals and albums.
