Google is using the technology created for their Google Street View project to bring art to the masses! While impossible to completely replicate the experience of viewing a piece of art in a museum, Google Art is trying to do the next best thing. The database has over 30,000 pieces from museums all over the world, and displays the artwork at 7 billion pixel resolution. Not only is this a great opportunity for people to view artwork in other countries, it is a really special chance for people who may be confined to their homes or unable to navigate a museum setting due to a disability to see famous works of art.
