I am always looking for exciting Art Websites and the Luce Foundation Center for American Art is a good one.

 

  •  The center has a light box program that you can view its 3500 Artworks. You can even create your own personal collection, your favorites.

The Website is not as good as going to the Luce Center, which occupies three floors in the west wing of the Smithsonian, but if you cannot get to Washington, it is a close second.

The center is an open storage program that exhibits or openly stores artworks from the Smithsonian’s American Collection. That in its self is a great idea and gives you and me access to parts of the National Collection that would otherwise be locked away in traditional storage.

 The Website creates access to the collection beyond the walls of the museum and is a great resource on American Art.
