The Grand Tour


Ok, so imagine that you are the owner of an art gallery and people aren't coming to see your paintings.  What do you do?  You bring the paintings to the people (of course)!  For the next 12 weeks the National Gallery in London England is displaying some of their most famous paintings on the streets of London.  Art lovers - don't be alarmed, they are only replicas.  The exhibit is called The Grand Tour.  You can go to their website and download maps and audio tours to help guide you through the paintings.  Or if you are just walking the streets of London and come across a painting, simply use your mobile phone to dial the number displayed and hear the museum's description of the piece.  I think this is such a brilliant idea.  To see more images of the paintings on display, check out this Flickr gallery.  (Found through Noisy Decent Graphics)
