Wyeth - Main Screen

Pinnacle worked with the world-renowned Farnsworth Museum in Rockland to develop an interactive online environment known as Three Generations of Wyeth Art,which is best described as an interactive, multimedia computer-based tool that combines art, education and technology in an informative and highly accessible format.  One of the many interactive learning components is a virtual gallery where museum patrons, students and art scholars can create and ‘hang’ their own exhibition, selecting from hundreds of images of Wyeth art.

This unique software application is breaking new ground in arts education at a national level.
