Project: Google Art Project

In another sign that Google is taking over the world, they launched the Google Art Project today. Art Project, powered by Google allows users to explore museums from around the world, discover and view hundreds of artworks at incredible zoom levels, and even create and share your own collection of masterpieces.

Using technology similar to their “street view” feature on Google Maps, users can take a virtual tour of art institutions around the world like the MoMA (NY), Palace of Versailles, National Gallery (London), the Tate, and more. Also, each one chose one artwork to be photographed in 7 billion pixels, which means stunning details down to individual brushstrokes can be seen.
