Cell-phone wallpapers for fine-art lovers

Hopper Would I really want a Claude Monet water lily or an Edward Hopper lighthouse as decorations for my cell-phone screen? No, I wouldn’t. But I could have them, thanks to a program developed by Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopulos for Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. Pricing starts at $1.99. The MFA claims to be the first museum in the country to go the mobile-wallpaper route. They should try some art/ringtone combos. They could team with the Boston Symphony Orchestra on a string concerto for Monet, with the Boston Pops for a zippy “Sloop John B” to go with Hopper’s lighthouse, and with that bandana-guitar-guy who hangs out near Park Street Station (I think he does Korn songs) for the crappy found/modern art stuff the MFA exhibits sometimes. Of course, there is a museum of sorts where the whole music/image thing is a natural.
