Kansas City Art Tech 360° Video



Quick look at one of the best Kansas City cultural attractions recently updated . . .

"New Bloch Galleries at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art open to the public . . . A highlight: nearly 30 masterworks of Impressionist and post-Impressionist works collected by Marion and Henry Bloch. Think artists like Degas, Monet, and van Gogh.

"But visitors to the new galleries might also be dazzled by some of the technological upgrades, from sound to lighting."

Even better, this video spares our readers from having to venture into the real world to see it!!!

I there any irony in this 10 minute video, that seems to never end and ONLY talks about the lights, NOT the paintings?

The only "Impression" I am getting, is that the gallery has too much money and blew a boatload of it on lighting. Wouldn't the natural light that the artists used lend a more realistic display of what was intended?

People are gonna do the same thing there, they do everywhere else. Walk around, looking down at their I Pones instead of looking up as they accidentally knock a painting off of the wall.

I don't understand why I would want to be looking at art when that does nothing to further my online brand.

You only think they're "masterworks" because people in the "Art Game" have told you so.

Truth: Throughout history, there have been thousands of comparable, if not more gifted, artists across the globe. A relatively small group of wealthy collectors, museum directors, art critics, and gallery owners come to consensus on what they like, and most importantly what they're willing to spend to acquire, and then most everyone else just goes along with it. It's no different than high fashion, whereby a small group of people in Paris, Milan, NYC, agree that the fashionistas will be wearing earth-toned peasant wear this year. Next year, it's something different, and you simply must buy the latest trend. haha! Art and fashion, stupid games for people with more dollars than sense.
