All I have to say is, Holy Cow! The Google Art Project has embarked on a mission to allow anyone and everyone to explore the greatest museums in the world, all from the comfort of your home computer monitor. Now, I must preface this by saying that no virtual experience can beat the real thing, but that said, this project is pretty darn sweet! Currently, 17 museums have participated in the project, with more likely to be added in the future. For each museum you can view a selection of paintings from their collection. The website works really smoothly (no long waits for pages to load, thank you!) and the images are available at high (HIGH!!) resolution. Go enjoy the brush strokes!!
