Brookyln Art Museum: Vishnu: Hinduism’s Blue-Skinned Savior
When the Vishnu exhibit was in it’s initial planning stages the Brooklyn Museum of Art was trying to come up with an interactive way to explain Vishnu’s many avatars.The curatorial team decided that the vibrant illustration from The Little Book of Hindu Deities would make the perfect introduction to the avatars of Vishnu. These illustrations became the backbone of the interactive experience. Upon reaching the gallery visitors are greeted with these illustrations on a series of iPad kiosks that help guide you through the show. But first guests must choose which avatar to explore and take a tag with the coordinating image on it. There are also open bins containing all the different avatars to choose from.
