The Google Art Project is one of my favorite offerings from Google that isn’t a productivity tool. The Google Art Project features artwork from dozens of famous museums all over the world. The Google Art Project takes inside the museum with Street View imagery. This week the Google Art Project received some updates that make it easier to find works of art. You can now search according to artist, location, and date. Watch the video below for an overview of how to use the site.
Applications for Education
The latest version of the Google Art Project includes an option to compare two works of art. There is still an option to create your own artwork collection while visiting each
museum. Have your students combine the use of these tools to compare works of art as part of analysis/ critique assignments.
