We think Smarthistory works best when it prompts discussion. Please post (on-topic) comments, (constructive) criticism, and praise (we love praise).*

Maybe you only have hazy memories of a dark auditorium, a soporific voice, and hundreds of slides of Mary and baby Jesus; perhaps you have a love of museums, but have no experience with art history.

Or, maybe you're a designer, an illustrator, a museum educator, a conservator or curator, or even (gasp!) an art historian. Whatever your background, we welcome your thoughts and ideas.
