SYRACUSE, NY .-
The Everson Museum of Art
announce the launch of a new interactive component of its web site, www.everson.org, created by 2nd Nature Studios. Look, Think, Share! offers visitors a chance to look at works from the Eversons permanent collection and share their thoughts on the web site.
Look, Think, Share! uses Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS), an art based curriculum which encourages critical thinking and communication skills by asking open-ended questions about art. VTS was developed by cognitive psychologist Abigail Housen and museum educator Philip Yenawine.
We are thrilled to offer this unique opportunity to interact with art from the Eversons collection on our web site and to make our collection much more accessible to the public, said Pam McLaughlin, Everson Museum of Art Curator of Education and Public Programs. Look, Think, Share! presents art works that invite careful looking and thinking to figure out whats going on in the painting. The exciting part is sharing your interpretations and reading about what other people find in the art.
Look, Think, Share! can be accessed from the website, by clicking on Look, Think, Share! from the Education drop down menu located at the top of the page. From there, visitors can select images from the Eversons permanent collection, and add their own thoughts to the web site.
