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.

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.

The tool itself is open source. If you are an organization with an open access visual collection that you would like to use in a tool like this, feel free to contact me!
