Museums Go Digital

Today’s New York Times had a great article about the ways in which art museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, are using digital technology. In addition to enhancing viewer experiences, curators and conservators are using digital tools, like 3-D printing, to learn more about works of art, or see objects in ways not possible with the human eye.

“Museums are being redefined for a digital age. The transformation, museum officials say, promises to touch every aspect of what museums do, from how art and objects are presented and experienced to what is defined as art.”
