The Montclair Art Museum Launches Online Collection
Over 650 Works of Art included in New Searchable Online Database; Public Invited to Vote for Favorite Artwork
Web visitors can find the new site at http://collection.montclairartmuseum.org/
Taking advantage of the new technology in the new collections section of MAM’s website, the Museum is also inviting the public to vote on their favorite artwork in MAM’s collection. One of the featured eMuseum subcategories is the exhibition 100 Works for 100 Years, on view through summer 2014, which highlights 100 pieces from MAM’s permanent collection in honor of its Centennial Year. Visitors to the collections website can select their favorite with just one click and are encouraged to comment on why they chose a particular work. Write-in votes for a favorite work not included in the exhibition are also accepted by emailing email@example.com. Vote early and often! The top ten works will be displayed at MAM at a future date.
The Montclair Art Museum's Online Collection is generously supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Museum will seek additional funding opportunities in order to continue to expand the number of works and types of content available online.
