Google’s Art Project

…is amazing. Have you explored it yet?

Right now rather than trudging through the slush of New York, I am walking through the galleries of the Hermitage. While it also has really excellent, high-resolution images of the artworks and details about them, I think it is navigating the galleries that I most enjoy. Museums as places are special in themselves, and being able to navigate the space in such a real way, while having more information about a work of art a click away, is maybe the next best thing to being able to visit them.
