MINNEAPOLIS, MN.- The Walker Art Center and the
Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) announce the relaunch of
ArtsConnectEd, their award-winning
educational Web site.
The new ArtsConnectEd includes a rich array of
extra features, such as the ability to contribute content through comments,
tags, and ratings, and it invites teachers and students to create and upload
presentations, lesson plans, and curricula and classroom materials.
These changes make the Web site more responsive to the needs of
educators, students, higher education scholars, and an international
public—while maintaining and improving the site’s access to both institutions’
collections, educational resources, and archives.
