Google Art Project

I’ve played with Google Art Project since its inception, but recent renovations make me very excited! If you’re unfamiliar with Google Art Project, it is an online “museum,” a repository of high resolution images and 3D gallery views of art collections from more than 40 countries and 151 collections. Here’s a brief video outlining how it works:

If you teach Art, Art History, or want to incorporate artworks into your classroom, it is a great free resource to explore collections from around the world. Students can even collect and curate their own works. They have several lesson plans and ideas in their education section.

    Excellent site, Jennifer. It has my bookmark! Its creative format reminded me of another aspect of the impact of evolving technology – I just finished reading “Hour of Peril” by Daniel Stashower in ebook format and its index, instead of listing page numbers, simply lists “terms”, really key words, to be used with the search function. It is an improvement.
