The Best Ways To Appreciate Art Collections
Are you a fan of art? If you have a passion for the arts, you may want to make a point of visiting some of the many beautiful art collections around the world. You should be able to find art collections that are located close to home, but you may also be able to find collections that you can travel to see.
One great collection is George Kravis at the Kravis Design Center in Tulsa, OK. Featuring over 2000 art pieces in his collection. His collection features industrial modern designs of various household items. His collection really makes you appreciate the value and beauty of art.

Nearly every museum in the world has an art collection. Some of the world’s most famous museums collect art from some of the most famous artists of our time. Other museums have a specialty. For example, there are museums that collect sculpted art and museums that focus on modern art.
If you have a museum in your area, you should look more closely at their art collection. See what kind of pieces they have in their collection. If the collection appeals to you, you might want to visit it in person.
Art collections aren’t always tied to one particular museum. There are many collections of art that travel from one museum to another. This allows a larger number of people to see the art that’s a part of this collection.
You should try to subscribe to the newsletter for local museums. If there is a guest collection of art that is available to see at the museum, you’ll be able to visit it while it is there. This will allow you to see art that you would never have been able to see under normal circumstances.

Visiting Other Museums
If you’re taking a trip to a new place, you may want to look more closely at the art collections in that area. If you’re drawn to some of the art that you see, you could make a point of visiting some of those museums.
Some people wind up planning vacations around museums and art collections. Cities like Florence or Paris are full of museums and art collections. If you want to take an art trip, you should make a point of visiting a city that houses impressive art collections.
Appreciating Small Collections
You don’t have to focus all of your attention on major artists if you want to appreciate art collections. Not all great art is housed in a museum; you can also find art in many small galleries. In fact, you may even be able to see some art if you visit a local coffee shop.
If you think that you might want to purchase a piece of original art for yourself, you may want to make a point of visiting some of these collections and seeing what they have to offer. A lot of this art is very reasonably priced.
Viewing Art Collections Online
In many cases, the true beauty of art collections can only be seen in person. Pictures often don’t capture the subtle details that make a painting or a sculpture special. With that said, if you’d like to admire art collections without taking a trip to a museum, you can view some collections online.
You can also try here for other art collection resources.
Many museums, from The Metropolitan Museum of Art to The Getty Museum, allow you to view their art collections online. You can relax, have a glass of wine, and look at great art without having to leave your house.
There are many different art collections out there. If you love art and want to look at more of it, you should make a point of visiting some of these selections. If you want to own more art, you might want to look at the collections at smaller local galleries. You’ll be able to find some lovely pieces at places like this.
Art comes in many shapes and sizes. In fact, art can be pretty hard to define sometimes. For example, the popular yet ellusive street artist–Banksey–could be argued a vandalist or an artist, depending on your point of view. Those who have been lucky/unfortunate enough to have one of his paintings applied to their property know first hand what its like.Of course, we would argue on the side of fortune in the knowledge that Banksey’s last piece of art work sold for £500,000! Not too shabby, wouldn’t you say? The problem with art and the up and coming generation is that they associate it with old roman status, and oil paintings. It doesn’t have to be this way and there are tonnes of artists creating things in various places ouy of a number of materials, using thousands of different methods.It has never been easier to try and be creative yourself. More and more enthusiast shops are opening, not to mention online resources. Don’t just limit yourself to things you can buy as there are plenty of things that are being thrown away that can be reinvigarated and used within a project.
Taking the subject further, a relatively new type of art is body art. Now it’s possible to do any number of things to make one’s body a piece of art. Some options are permanent, some are temporary. For example, you could change the white of your eye to blue if you like. Not really our cup of tea… but things like this are working their way into the main stream.
So is traditional art still around? Well… yes it is. Art gallaries still put on wine evenings and auctions for art lovers and enthusiasts. The industry still remains quirky in the sense that an artists art isn’t worth much until they die… which is kind of morbid, but very true.
Art is everywhere we look. In fact, the 24 hours of Le Man is on as I write this. In this race, there are two cars dubbed Art Cars. These special entrants have had the honor of a reputable artist designing the paint scheme of their car for charity. These machines are not only functionally one of the fastest cars on the planet, reaching speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour… they look absolutely stunning! We think more sports should adopt this approach. Leave any suggestions you may have in the comments below, we’d love to hear from you.
Thats about it for now. Keep your eyes peeled for other examples of historic, modern, and post modern art and be sure to let us know. Also, check back for more posts, you wont be disappointed.
