Hey culture vultures, you can now get a dose of a museum visit from your laptop! The MoMA (Museum of Modern Art to the Luddite) has just gone live with the first online art exhibit, and its theme is color.
Color Chart is an all-online exhibit of modern artists from 1918 to 2008 who interpreted color in different and innovative ways. The works of greats like Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, and Ellsworth Kelly make up this online composition that forces new appreciation of them — like any good exhibit can do.
As a geek, I can really appreciate the setup of the website — it's aesthetically pleasing and achingly easy to navigate through the works. The quality of the work, combined with the high resolution, makes me feel cultured, and also absolved for watching that Newport Harbor marathon.
