I'm excited to introduce Eye Level (eyelevel.si.edu), the blog for the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM).
Eye Level presents an extraordinary collaboration among curators, conservators, historians, enthusiasts, critics, designers, and of course bloggers-all participants in the story of American art.
When the Smithsonian American Art Museum reopens its renovated historic main building in July 2006, it will be a showcase for American art that celebrates this nation's vision and creativity. SAAM's blog Eye Level (eyelevel.si.edu) is part of the museum's continuing effort to explore the stories central to the American experience and to search for what connects Americans today.
Using the museum's collection as a touchstone, the conversation at Eye Level will center on the ways in which the nation's art connects to its history and culture. The discussion will extend beyond works at the Smithsonian American Art Museum to include other collections, exhibitions, and events.
We invite you to join the discussion at SAAM's blog: Eye Level (eyelevel.si.edu).
