We value and appreciate differences as a method of supporting Tolerance
 
True tolerance requires the free flow of ideas, quality education for all, respect for human rights, and the sharing of cultures for mutual understanding.

On Friday, the International Day for Tolerance, you're invited to leave a comment here with your ideas for countering intolerance here. See more suggestions online: http://j.mp/vLqWVk

Bright future for us all
 
Reconstructing the World’s Museums

Everyday people use Google Maps, which uses an integration of satellite, aerial, and street imagery, as a useful tool to find directions as well as to explore the world. However, because it is impossible to take pictures of indoor environments from aerial viewpoints, indoor visualization is limited to ground level data, hampering effective and intuitive remote navigation of large scale indoor spaces. 

In the paper Reconstructing the World’s Museums (http://goo.gl/sLVaaY), one of the Google Excellent Papers for 2012 (http://goo.gl/PIyuT), Princeton Assistant Professor and former Google intern +Jianxiong Xiao (http://goo.gl/B7xvyg) present a 3D reconstruction and visualization system for large indoor environments. Along with Assistant Professor at Washington University in St. Louis and former Google Software Engineer +Yasutaka Furukawa (http://goo.gl/yFKKtM), Xiao describes how their system uses image and linear laser range sensor data from the +Google Art Project, and a new algorithm called Inverse CSG (Constructive Solid Geometry, http://goo.gl/LD7RIY), to create photorealistic aerial renderings of indoor scenes. 

Developed when Xiao interned at Google under the supervision of Furukawa, the algorithm first divides a three dimensional space into 2D “slices”, using rectangles as “geometric primitives” to solve a 2D CSG. They then stack the “slices”, generating 3D geometric primitives based on the 2D reconstructions, finally solving for a 3D CSG model and effectively reconstructing the free space volume of a room. By including image data with the 3D reconstruction, the authors demonstrate a method of producing texture-mapped 3D models that can be rendered from aerial viewpoints, allowing remote explorers to intuitively navigate a reconstructed floorplan and transition to Street View images to see fine detail.

To learn more, read the full paper (linked above), and watch Xiao’s presentation of the paper at the 12th European Conference on Computer Vision (http://goo.gl/3LCEQb), linked below

I have been to this museum around 10 times and every time in the permanent collection I find something new to study and the delight in. Most recently I took 45 of my fifth grade art students to a wonderful program called "folk art to go". The kids were delighted by the collection and the docents were so good at explaining things to them in an interesting way. The kids also got to make an art project. this museum is absolutely wonderful -you must go!

Thank you for sharing your experience with Folk Art to Go! It is loads of fun for us to see school groups make art in the museum! The projects are related to current exhibitions- If you are an educator and don't know us yet, please give us a call or email!

One of my favorite museums in the world! We go often. The permanent collection is fascinating, and all the temporary exhibitions are wonderfully curated. Always great activities for kids in the exhibitions, as well as a kids' area with wonderful puppets and toys. A delight always.

I found this museum to be extremely interesting and explosive in color. The permanent collection in the Girard Wing is THE place to hang out and marvel at all the little details. Toys from around the world hang out here, literally. Just look up! There's so much to see that some objects hang high in the walls. Everything is so well crafted that it inspired me to get artsy and reconnect with my creative side. It's a definite must for all art lovers. The pottery and immigration exhibitions were on display when I went, but two other ones were closed. I learned a lot about pottery and got a tad emotional reading what people had written about their origins and times they've felt out of place. Great stuff!

Teams of people feel fabulous after reading your review. Literally hundreds in the coarse of a year work together on a fairly rigorous production schedule. You made our year! Thank you for the great stuff.

World class collection. The ethnographic central gallery remains a fascinating permanent exhibit.
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
The collection and visions of Alexander Girard's Multiple Visions: A Common Bond is beloved by many, and overwhelming for some. Thank you for sharing your vision of this gallery. We hope you enjoy new exhibitions in 2016 presenting American and Asian folk art!

It was nice & all, the permanent exhibit was good... but seemed pretty small for being known as the largest collection of International Folk Arts in world.
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
Hi Luis - Thank you for taking time to write this review. The Museum houses the world's largest collection of International Folk Art, this fact does not result in the largest physical gallery size. For example, the long term exhibition Multiple Visions: A Common Bond that you mention displays 10% of Alexander Girard's collection, the other 90% is in the collections storage vault.

The Alexander and Susan Girard wing has folk art specializing in unique miniatures and children's toys of 100 countries. The density of the exhibits and the breadth of the collection make for an intellectually and visually stunning experience. Favorite would be the 3D reconstructions of Diego Rivera scenes.
