Currently featuring the Shaw Memorial (see the annotation under "Creative" above.)
National Gallery of Art - Watson and the Shark
A must visit before leaving the site...The Cambodian exhibit was software specific --IBM platform users need Windows 95 to download the browser plugin. This site allow access to all platforms, including most schools that use an older operating system for their computers.
The onsite tour offers superior quality thumbnails (about 4-5K) of a dozen of Singleton's paintings with a brief description of each. Clicking on the thumbnail launches a larger version (about 20K) of the painting for viewing. This feature of the site is experimental...and feedback is encouraged.
National Gallery of Art - Area Map
Presents information on access and times...and a fine map of the location. Teachers might assign students to use some of the map resources on the Web to serve as an introduction to a student-designed "virtual tour" or a multimedia report of the National Gallery.
