Enjoy Museums & Art Online
In Zurich and Around the World
Enjoying Art & Culture in Zurich & Beyond Despite Corona
Whilst we’re all staying at home during the Corona Crisis, one of the saddest things is that we can’t visit many of the great exhibitions that were taking place or had been planned to take place in our art galleries and museums.
I had personally wanted to go back and visit the Van Gogh exhibition at the Maag Halle again as well as view many other exhibitions in Zurich. However, one thing you may not have yet discovered, is that many museums not just in Zurich, but worldwide, are going online or are having their work made available to view online, so that the Corona Virus does not necessarily have to plunge us into a cultural abyss! Take a look at some ideas below.
Artwork From Zentrum Paul Klee
