Each of the Virtual Museum’s over 123,000 members, who hail from around the globe, can share up to three images a day. Members are responsible for finding the public domain images (typically on museum websites) and researching the painting’s title, year, artist, current location and other details. (These instructions are shared with group members in English, Arnaldo’s native Italian, French, Spanish, and Russian.) After an individual member posts a picture, Arnaldo then chooses the perfect frame.
“My idea was that I would invite people to post beautiful artwork pictures that they have, and then I, as an administrator of the group, would add a value to it by finding the best frames for them to give people that true experience of being in an art gallery in general and in a virtual museum particularly. This is when I came across your software and fell in love with it. It was truly exactly what I was looking for!”
