On our recent fieldtrip to Chicago, I purchased a WONDERFUL CD-ROM at the
Art Institute. It is called "With Open Eyes - Images From the Art Institute
of Chicago" and costs about $40. It is geared for children, but I have had
a lot of fun with it and so did my 21-year-old son. Using about 200 images
from the museum collection, you can hear background about a piece, see where
it was produced, locate it on a timeline and place it in context with other
pieces from the same era, check its scale in a virtual gallery, play some
games and, best of all, zoom in on details. The quality of the visuals is
wonderful! Does anyone else have favorite CDs they would recommend?
