<nettime-ann> [ann] Introducing Eye Level

I'd like to introduce Eye Level (eyelevel.si.edu), the blog for the
Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM). It's one of just a few museums
forging new ground with new media (and the Smithsonian's first blog!).
Today's the official launch and I hope you'll check it out. 

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. Eye Level 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. 

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. We invite you to
join the discussion at SAAM's blog-Eye Level.

Best, Jeff
