Art in the time of Coronavirus*
The galleries are closed. The museums are shuttered. How you gonna get your art fix? How about a stroll through New York’s Guggenheim Museum? Or London’s British Museum? Or maybe the Louvre in Paris? Of course, you can’t do that, you’ve been corona’d. But you can enjoy world class art from the comfort of your living room.
In this time of self-isolation, many galleries and museums are offering free online tours. You can get nose-to-nose with a Giacometti, smell Monet's water lillies, or admire Picasso's jigsaw-puzzle ladies.
Here are some links to get you started:
Google Art & Culture
Mental Floss museums you can visit online
And check the websites of your favorite galleries. Many now feature online viewing of their artists' work.
So sit back on your couch and let your fingers do the walking as you browse through the many online offerings.
Until next time...
