Help the Frost Art Museum win an Inktel Innovations grant

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum is in the running for a grant to help fund and expand its current Virtual Frost Project. The project will allow the museum’s exhibitions to be seen over the web in 360-degree views. Currently, the Frost is in third place.

With this grant, the Frost will be one of the first museums in the United States to offer 360-degree replication of its galleries online to the global community. There will be comprehensive virtual tours of all nine museum galleries as well as interactivity. Virtual visitors will be able to view current and past exhibitions as if they were standing in the galleries. The Virtual Frost project has been designed and developed by College of Architecture + The Arts professor Malik Benjamin and implemented by architecture graduate students Marilyn Roa, Mauricio Gonzalez and Thiago Pimentel de Menezes.

The project is part of the Museum of the Future initiative meant to expand and enhance the Frost’s impact in the digital age. As part of this initiative, the museum will build a technological infrastructure to facilitate the creation of online communities through video, podcasts, online chats, high-quality webcasts and mobile apps.

To vote for the Frost, “Like” Inktel Direct on Facebook, and then “Like” the Frost Art Museum’s project (look for the photo of the Frost in the Inktel Direct album on grants). Don’t forget to leave a comment and tell everyone why this is such a great project! Voting ends Aug. 4.
