Seattle Art Museum website sports stunning new look thanks to grant from Microsoft

The Seattle Art Museum’s website has a stunning new look, with more ways for the public to engage with the museum – through high-resolution images and videos from virtual collections, museum maps and ticket purchasing – after a re-do of the site using a grant from Microsoft.

The site is now optimized for mobile devices, so that “people walking down the street looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon can pull up the SAM site, become really intrigued by what they see, and decide spur of the moment to visit the museum,” said Roberto Yglesias, business technology director at Buildingi, a local company that helped create the SharePoint-powered site.
