Tech B.F.F.~Google Cultural Institute

Google Cultural InstituteGoogle Cultural Institute

 

Google’s collaboration and  partnership with international museums, cultural institutions, and archives resulted in a growing digital treasure of cultural merit.  With a goal to display more of diverse heritage online, the collection is ongoing. Artworks and digital exhibitions plant the seeds of digital storytelling and exposition.  The Google team also includes the stories behind the archives of cultural institutions across the globe.

Visitors can add items to their own individualized gallery My favorite is “Meeting Street” which is a featured gallery. The robust search engine will display works across galleries worldwide as I found when I searched my favorite painter, George Inness.

Visit Google Cultural Institute today!
