Session: Demo Session 2

In 1997, Kraft Foods Int. brought together 10 institutions, representing some of the finest museums and performing arts organizations in the city of Chicago. Kraft's goal was to forge a citywide arts partnership. Kraft had long supported each of the institutions individually and hoped to discover a new strength and energy in bringing them together. This partnership, Art Discovery would bring arts resources to Chicago Public Schools in support of the core curriculum. One of the results of the partnership is a group website for educators, http://www.artdiscovery.org. Artdiscovery.org demonstrates how a website can provide an information resource for educators that is accessible, manageble and useful.
