Google Art Project
Google Art Project. Go ahead...click on it! It will take you to a fabulous website that Google has put together partnering with some of the best art museums in the world. You can view the art and access all kinds of information about each piece. You can wander the galleries and corridors of these famous museums. And you can even put together your own collection of favorites to share with friends. I never cease to be amazed at the places this computer can take me! As I roamed the galleries of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and the halls of Versailles, I reminded myself that this is the way to use technology; to allow anyone regardless of their financial situation to view the world's greatest art treasures. And it's better than a picture in a book...by 'virtually' walking the halls, it's almost as good as being there in person!
