Museums and libraries across the world release free coloring pages

(25 Mar 2020) With museums and galleries closing in the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic, cultural institutions are trying to be innovative to offer activities in line with the “social distancing” guidelines.

While 2,500 world-class museums are offering virtual tours on Google’s Arts & Culture pages, the New York Academy of Medicine has invited libraries and cultural institutions to provide coloring pages based on their collections.

More than 100 organizations took part in this year’s installment, among which are the New York Botanical Garden, the Smithsonian, the University of Melbourne and Washington State Library.

The coloring books, free to download as PDF pages, are suited for wannabe artists of all ages.
