Web umenia is an open platform to explore digitized art collections from public galleries and museums.
Web umenia is developed by lab.SNG: the digital R&D lab of the Slovak National Gallery. We are working with public art organisations to make their art accessible and explorable online so curious people around the world can learn more about works of art and the context they've been created in.
Web umenia offers a user-friendly way to search and explore art from collections of multiple galleries and museums.
Digital reproductions of public domain artworks from several collections are available for download in high resolution for both personal and commercial use
Art organisation with digitized artworks organised in a Collection Management System can easily publish their art via CSV imports or OAI-PMH harvests. If you would like to know more about using Web umenia in your organisation, contact us via email@example.com
Developers interested to build applications on top of Web umenia can use our API. See our wiki on GitHub for more info.
We greatly encourage others to get involved! See our contributing guidelines for more info about different ways to contribute to Web umenia.
We are committed to providing a welcoming and inspiring community for all and expect others who participate in the project to honour our code of conduct.

This application uses IIPImage server for zoomable (and downloadable) images.
IIPImage must be seen locally, what can be achieved using a ProxyForwarding.
To enable image server for default oai set (Europeana), put this lines of code into your virtualhost setup:
ProxyPass /fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi http://imi.sng.cust.eea.sk/publicIS/fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi ProxyPassReverse /fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi http://imi.sng.cust.eea.sk/publicIS/fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi
