The ArtsNet Minnesota presentation will outline how The Walker Art Center, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and The Frederick R. Weisman Museum, curriculum writers, community members, art centers, educational organizations, students and teachers, formed a unique statewide Minnesota partnership and created a collaborative community website that functions as an information network for the purpose of arts resource exchange. On April 17th students from all over the state will select an artwork from the site and develop a student page link. They will bring the images and text to an all day technology workshop, conducted at the University of Minnesota. While they are at their workshop, the sponsoring teachers (who may be meeting online friends for the first time) will take a customized all day tour of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Walker Art Center and The Frederick R. Weisman museum.
