This Friday, May 18, is the 35th annual International Museum Day. As indicated in their press release, the theme of this year’s event is “Museums in a Changing World. New challenges, New inspirations.”

We think that theme is particularly appropriate. As you may know, we feel that Art Authority’s collection of 50,000+ works of western art, free iBook, and our related activities, are a big part of that changing world and those new inspirations. And, yes, some of those new challenges as well. Making a difference in this changing world was the major impetus behind our new summer intern program, as well as a major theme in the “World’s Biggest Art Museum” talk we moderated at Macworld/iWorld.

The International Museum Day press release goes on to state that 30,000 museums in over 100 countries are holding special events for the occasion. Well, we’d like to make it 30,001. So we’re putting all versions of Art Authority on sale for the special price of $4.99 (normally $7.99 to $9.99 depending on platform), on Friday and througout the weekend. The recently retina-display-enhanced iPad version is a particularly good deal.
