    Art and accessibility

    Although a lot of art venues tend to have good accessibility, I thought I'd share this from The BBC News about online exhibits:-






    Charity Art UK took 140,000 photographs of works by artists such as Antony Gormley and Henry Moore.

      Thanks Arcadian

      I have been to museums and art galleries all over the world, virtually, of course. I particularly like going up grand staircases 😉

      The Google Arts and Culture website is a good resource, although it can be clunky to find things.

      Choose your tour and enjoy - works with eye gaze too. xx

        The angel of the north. I'm not sure what I think about art. I either really love it or I'm sort of not sure. I really don't get the idea of an angel looking like that. Perhaps there's a meaning to it that I don't know about. 🤔
        when i can think of something profound i will update this.

          I like the Angel of the North, and whatever your own thoughts are you have to acknowledge that it is an impressive piece of design and engineering. It's when Tracy Emin just chucks a manky bed into a gallery and reckons it is "art" that I have a problem.

              Oh yeah. Which came first? Actually if they put a statue of buzz lightyear I get it more though then I'd be wondering why there. 🤔 cant do unmade bed or sheep cut in half or a row of bricks. I'm thinking I need to tidy my lounge but I'm reckoning it could be a work of art and I'm destroying it. 🤣
