The Indianapolis Museum of Art has put up a page with an innovative way to browse their collections. It’s called Tag Tours, and is based on social tagging. For example you can browse works by tags such as colour, or a variety of content subjects/themes (animals, food, sports). It’s a great way for the museum to show off some of the gems in the collection that aren’t on display very often, and for visitors to explore and arrange the collection in ways other than artist or period.
