Google Art Project

Google Art Project is my latest obsession. For all those who have seen it, I am sure must love hopping from the Art Gallery of South Australia to the Art Institute of Chicago and from the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in Netherlands to Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and for those who have’nt just click here - Google Art Project and enter the best virtual museum made till date. 

The platform now features more than 32,000 artworks from 46 museums in 18 languages. The best feature I think is the 'museum view' where one can walk through the virtual doors admiring works of art. The zoom is beyond imagination, one can zoom into a painting to see the little cracks and paint strokes. Google has taken the next step in building what our education system will look like in 10 years.

Look like an expert ;)
