So, I love the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Those of you who are lucky enough to live in NYC can visit as often as you like. However, for those of use beyond the five boroughs, that's a little trickier to manage. Or at least it was...
Look over there. At the top of the left column... see, it says "Artwork of the Day." This is my new favorite daily treasure!
Artwork of the Day is a feed from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each day they choose a piece of art from their HUGE collection. And here's the best part: they aren't chosen randomly. The choices in January, for example, have been very wintery and chilly paintings. During Hanukkah and Christmas, their selections were seasonal. On Epiphany, an image of the three wise men. I love the timeliness of each choice -- a link between art and life.
In fact, just the other day this was the Met's Artwork of the Day [Image: Metropolitan Museum of Art]:
Sports on a Frozen River " by Aert van der Neer, a Dutch painter from the 17th century.
On the same day, this was a photo on Jaunted.com in a story about skating in the Netherlands [Photo: AP via Yahoo ]:

A note to Google reader users: here's the link you will need. The one they list doesn't quite work in the Google reader.
