Boca Raton Museum of Art on Google Arts

New Google Arts & Culture Partnership with Boca Raton Museum of Art

The Boca Raton Museum of Art, in partnership with Google Arts & Culture, is presenting over 240 works of art online.

Thanks to this new virtual exhibition, users will be able to see rarely seen Theresa Bernstein paintings, an early sculpture by Michael Heizer, delicate Yoruba textiles, and drawings, gouaches, and photographs by Amedeo Modigliani, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, and Manuel Alvarez Bravo that are light-sensitive and not always on view.  

All of these works are now readily available with just a few clicks online and on its app, available for download on Android and iOS. 

Digital Exhibits

Specially curated virtual exhibits have been developed for online visitors who can discover interactive exhibits curated by curators at the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

At present, with more to come, three digital exhibitions are available. They tell the stories of photographer Sally Gall, Miami self-taught painter Purvis Young, and Depression-era families via WPA photographers.

In these online exhibitions, you will find:

  • The exquisite detail evident in the waves in Tanah Lot, gelatin silver print, by Sally Gall, thanks to Google’s immersive viewing feature
  • The rich expressionistic symbolism in Purvis Young’s Eye over the City
  • The poignant window into Depression-era life in Dorothea Lange’s Lunchtime in Nursery at FSA Migrant Camp at Shafter, California

“By presenting highlights of our collection online, we hope to spawn greater conversations and stay connected with an even larger population of researchers as well as online guests,” said Irvin Lippman, Executive Director of the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

“Audio visual access is integral to our Museum’s educational mission; and thanks to Google Arts & Culture, serving as a cultural ambassador, we can digitize our collections and exhibitions and find a bold new platform to reach more ‘visitors’ to the Museum,” added Lippman.

Google Arts & Culture puts the treasures, stories and knowledge of over 2.000 cultural institutions from 80 countries at your fingertips.

If Google’s mission is to make the world’s information more accessible, then Arts & Culture’s mission is to make the world’s culture accessible to anyone, anywhere.

It’s your doorway to explore art, history, and wonders of the world. Discover stories about cultural heritage ranging from Van Gogh’s bedroom paintings, Puerto Rico’s heritage, Sports in Australia or the women’s right movement to ancient Maya temples, Japanese Food and Indian Railways.
