Google Art Project--Look Closely!

video
Here's a little take on Google Art Project, another ambitious and beautiful work from Google that allows viewers to look at famous works of art in museums around the world.  The zoom feature is something special, since it enables a look at the works that brings all those brush strokes to life.

Yes! Love this! Jotted some ideas down for uses in art education on my blog. http://hollirausch.com/archives/848

I just told my students about this last week in class, It is great for those of us who don't have regular access to museums. There is so much value in seeing works up close!

I was pretty amazed at the zoom quality. I'll look at the Holli blog, Holli.
Cassie, it's nice to be able to look close and not get your nose on the paint.
