The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the most popular art museum in the United States.
CultureCraft is like a simple painting program, but instead of painting with colors, you are painting with fragments of visual culture from renowned museums and libraries such as the Met, the Smithsonian, and the New York Public Library.
The Smithsonian Institution is the world's largest museum, education, and research complex.
The Biodiversity Heritage Library is the world's largest open access digital library for biodiversity literature and archives.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is the global leader in space exploration.

About this project
CultureCraft was created by Brian Foo as a way to amplify discovery and reuse of open access visual material from museums and libraries from across the country. The tool itself is intentionally minimal with a very low barrier to entry. Its lack of features and controls encourages the user to focus on play and serendipity rather than trying to make something in particular.
