Originally begun as the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, has an impressive website that is easily accessible and fun to browse. Click on the "See" tab at the top of the page to choose from "Current Exhibitions", "Past Exhibitions", "Traveling Exhibitions", and "Search the Collection". To see the highlights of the Museum's collection of jewelry, quilts, metalwork and wood, click on "Collection Highlights" when in the "See" tab. To play curator and pick your own highlights of the collection, the Museum of Arts and Design has a feature that seems right at home on their site. Click on the "Interact" tab on the homepage, and choose "Curate the Collection". From there, click on "Collection Home" and scroll down to the middle of the page to register and start your own virtual collection that can even be saved and sent to friends. Also under the "Interactive" tab is the link to "Multimedia", which includes videos of interviews with artists, curators, the deinstallation of one of the past exhibits, several lectures on architecture, and several artists in the process of creating some new works.
