The Minneapolis Institute of Art has long encouraged visitors to use its collections as a catalyst to spark their own creativity. Viewers can now explore Mia’s art collection from the comforts of their own home through self-guided virtual tours, audio-stops, 360-degree images and zoom views of the collection.
Inspired by Mia invites anyone to download a high-res image from Mia’s collection and create their own work of art. Viewers can approximate sketching from “life” by visiting the Museum’s 3D photography collection. They can then send their image back to Mia to be featured on the museum’s website.
For those who appreciate art, but don’t make it, Mia also features a podcast series—with a new episode each month—exploring the strange and wonderful true stories of art.
