Appleton Compassion Project: Museum Increases Exhibit's Reach Threefold With Interactive Virtual Exhibit

For its Appleton Compassion Project exhibit of more than 10,000 works of student art, the Trout Museum of Art needed a way for visitors to easily find a specific student's artwork and associated artist's statement, and a way to share the exhibit outside the Wisconsin city of Appleton. Microsoft Partner Network member Skyline Technologies used Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft Silverlight, and Windows Azure to deliver an interactive virtual exhibit on the web and an app for Windows Phone. The virtual exhibit closely mimics the in-person viewing experience, extending more than 10,000 K-12 students' views on the meaning of compassion to people around the world.
