Event Description
Explore ways to expand critical thinking and bridge disciplines through art and technology. Join Spencer Museum of Art project coordinator Jessica Lea Johnson on a tour of the museum's space in the virtual world of Second Life. The Spencer’s Second Life island is an exploratory, fluid space made possible through the generosity of a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The museum's investigation into the potential applications of virtual worlds in an art-museum setting presents a spectrum of possibilities.
