> The host tried hard to find some controversy, but the guests had none of
> it: we had a curator/scholar/museum director, a photography department
> head, and an art critic all agreeing that there's nothing but good in
> giving the public access to free, high-resolution, public domain resources.
> Several times the panelists connected free/high-res/public domain images to
> the implicit message/value of museums in society.

> Many of the most famous artworks in the world have long been available to
> audiences looking for them on the web. But until recently, one still had to
> travel to museums to fully experience those masterpieces. Now museums are
> presenting high-resolution images of masterpieces in the public domain,
> allowing viewers to observe colors and textures like never before. We'll
> explore how technology is bringing the public closer to art and if that
> changes how we experience it.
