Committed to arts education, the museum formerly known as the National Academy of Design is a hidden gem of Manhattan. While the museum is temporarily closed, the adjacent school is a beacon for arts-minded individuals who long to tell the stories of American art.
The Members of the National Academy are art contributors-- and elected by their peers-- to the museum’s collection, and has exhibited some of the most prestigious American artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Art is for all, and even if you can’t visit in person, their art is available online all the time.
As the National Academy Museum relocates, they do not want you to miss out on their permanent art collection. With Google’s Cultural Institute search engine, you are able to virtually enter the art world. You are able to look pieces up based on medium, style, and the location they were created in. Using the virtual museum, you are able to get a closer look at the pieces and experience the detailing without the museum restrictions of getting too close!
