Art Museum Project

Wow! Have you seen Google's new Art Project? Announced Feb. 1, the best art museums from around world have been "googled". Imagine Google Map's "street-view" feature inside the museums. Now imagine closeups on minute details of the images with tons of background information. It's absolutely amazing. Visit Prague, Versailles, Amsterdam, London, NYC, Moscow, Florence and more. Build your own collection and share it with your friends. This is too good to miss!

I hope they continue to add more; most notably, Le Louvre, and why not the Cleveland Museum of Art? This is such a wonderful way for parents to introduce their children to art. Or for teachers to guide their students at any level, not just in the study of the art and artists, but in the study of the museum and it's architecture as well.

Is it too far fetched to dream that perhaps someday they'll arrive at Gallery One's door with their cameras??
