At Schultz Financial Group (SFG), we view wealth differently through our Four Capital approach. Our team works with you to build your wealth across Four Capitals – Financial Matters, Physical Well-being, Intellectual Engagement, and Psychological Space. This Intellectual Engagement article shares how to virtually explore art.
One of the most engaging ways to experience history and learn about different cultures is through art. Artists utilize their work to tell stories and share experiences. Visiting an art museum is an interactive and fun way to experience something new for both adults and children. Research suggests that children who engage with original works of art experience enriched learning (Holtrop, 2017). Museums are beginning to open back up at limited capacity around the world – but with travel still limited, you may find yourself longing for an interactive artistic experience.
Google Arts and Culture has curated content from over two thousand museums and archives around the world. They feature collections from various renowned museums such as Musée d’Orsay, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Rijksmuseum, MoMA, Uffizi Gallery, and many more. They have also categorized artists to collectively demonstrate the works of both famous and lesser-known artists. Google Arts and Culture also offers 360-degree videos where you can go diving in the tropics or listen to the Philadelphia Orchestra play at Carnegie Hall.
Exploring art virtually may not replace the in-person experience of walking up to a magnificent painting or listening to an orchestra in a concert hall, but it is still an interactive experience that you can have from the comfort of your home. Visit Google Arts and Culture to explore more of their features and exhibits.
