The de Young Periscope Project
Andrea Martin, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, USA
The Periscope Project aims to find ways to engage audiences and artists online. Through a set of websites established for each artist-in-residence, the museum will track the artists’ projects before and after their onsite residences. With artist talks, chats, hands-on activities, visitors’ stories, and other online programs, the museum seeks to expand peoples’ awareness of and experience of the artistic process, while allowing artists to build a community and reach new fans.
