The New “Google Art Project”

The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow
Okay, you need to drop what­ever you’re doing right now and visit the “Google Art Project”This site is an absolute “must see” for any­one who is inter­ested in art of any kind.… and you obvi­ously are, or you wouldn’t be read­ing this blog!  The Google Art Project (or “GAP” for short) is Google’s “street view” taken into some of the most highly acclaimed muse­ums in the world.  This amaz­ing site will allow you to take a vir­tual tour through one of 17 muse­ums (I’m hop­ing they will add even more in the future!) or view indi­vid­ual art­works and zoom in to get a closer look than you could if you were there in person.

Choose your museum and have fun exploring!
