From the Europeana Web Site:

We are excited to announce the launch of our first ever vir­tual exhi­bi­tion based on user-generated content.

Wiki Loves Art Nou­veau” is an online exhi­bi­tion made up of 50 images taken by Wiki­Com­mons mem­bers, rep­re­sent­ing some of Europe’s best exam­ples of Art Nou­veau archi­tec­ture. With over 165,000 entries in the Wiki Loves Mon­u­ments photo con­test, the spe­cial Art Nou­veau cat­e­gory spon­sored by Euro­peana saw 2,700 sub­mis­sions that were whit­tled down to 343 pho­tographs and put to a pub­lic vote. The new exhi­bi­tion com­ple­ments our exist­ing Art Nou­veau vir­tual exhi­bi­tion  that show­cases the­matic con­tent from dif­fer­ent cul­tural her­itage insti­tu­tions around Europe.
