Trends in Ed: Google Art Project

| April 6, 2011

Don’t want an hour train ride just to get to MOMA to see the latest exhibits of contemporary art? Don’t have the kind of money to buy a ticket to Paris to see Musée du Louvre ? Google Art Project can help you out.

Google Art Project has brought Google’s Street View technology indoors, allowing a user to “walk” through many of the halls of the museums. Super high resolution photographs are taken and is presented within a viewing technology that “makes it easy to zoom in to study the brushwork, or shine a spotlight on a minor character in a dense narrative painting.”
