36 Inspirational Fine Art Gallery & Museum Websites

The world of fine art is large and historic crossing borders all around the world. Art galleries and museums have been around for centuries but haven’t always been able to market themselves online. Now that most people in the world have Internet access it’s almost strange to not have a website – and this most certainly includes art museums.

For this gallery I’ve put together 36 websites created for museums and fine art galleries. Most layouts employ a sense of minimalism to put a direct focus on the photographs and page content. It’s not everyday that you’d need to create a new museum website, but it’s good to know what some of the big players are using for their own designs.

How To Build an HD Photo Gallery using Schema Microdata

There are plenty of benefits for developers who add Microformats or Microdata into their HTML markup. Search engines like Google or Yahoo! often look for this extra metadata when crawling new webpages. You can offer helpful attributes for text and media on the page, along with other information about people, businesses, ideas, projects, practically anything.

In this tutorial I would like to introduce Schema microdata as applied into an HTML5 image gallery. The dynamic content is powered by a small bit of jQuery so we can display thumbnails and the full-scale image as well. The codes here may be copied and ported into various other layouts for displaying lightboxes or streaming video. It’s a fun topic and offers a lot to those interested in learning!
