How we began our virtual tours
Our very first virtual art tour that I created was the French Impressionism Art Tour. I decided that this would be a great tour to start off with because we had a lot of customers that took this as a walking tour with us at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. I already had the main topics and list of artists. I could download artwork from the Museum’s website catalogue and feel confident that the image was exactly like the real painting hanging on the wall. However, halfway through the project I realized there are more artists, and even women artists that I don’t want to leave out of this experience. So, I combed through art databases, art museums, art blogs, and art WikiLeaks to find even more art. Of course, the major concern was if the image was true to the original artwork. If an image is not good, then the artwork will not be included in the art tour. I have very high standards because I know that the artwork is such a beloved key feature to a successful tour.
The next element to developing a great experience is your tour guide. I handpick people that have personality, get excited when they look at art, and have knowledge. Your presenter understands that artists do not work in a vacuum and have many influences upon their work.
