Artists now have a new medium...and we've got the scoop.

http://www.sfmoma.org/

For all those not into real art, SFMOMA is the San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art. This is one of the most technologically-advanced sites for digital art on the Web.

Among SFMOMA's most innovative features is a series entitled "SiteStreaming: Online Tours by Artists". For a particular period of time, online artists appear at the museum for live demonstrations of their sites. After the presentations, new Web-streaming technologies link the artists' recorded remarks to real-time, online tours of their work, enabling visitors to experience an artist-guided tour of each showing twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Very crisply laid out, this site has a section called "E.space" that explores new art forms which exist only in cyberspace. The site also has a decent collection of architecture and design projects, which can be quite delightful to a layman.

This is a good example of how classical art and the Web can co-exist in a symbiotic form. Don't miss it!

Here's another museum site for you. This is the official site for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. And it lives up to the reputation of the actual museum.

The site is a visual delight for ardent art collectors, as it offers information about a large collection of ancient artifacts that the museum houses (it claims to have a collection of over 3500 art pieces!). And if you think that's too much to go through, you might want to check out the "Timeline Of Art History", which tells you about ancient history.

Besides the collections and special exhibitions, a plethora of information is available in the "Educational Resources" and "Explore And Learn" segments. The site also has a Met Store, which enables art lovers to purchase paintings, photographs and artifacts online.

We wouldn't rule out this place in cyberspace to educate children and adults alike about ancient and modern cultures, art and history. Who ever said that museums are boring?
