Google Arts & Culture: Global Virtual Museum
Google's Arts & Culture app, powered by the Google Cultural Institute, was created to bring the art out of museums and into people’s homes, no matter where they live. The app allows users to view art from more than 1,000 museums across 70 countries, by searching specific pieces, time periods, colors, or other filters. Users can also experience the art in a virtual reality setting using Google Cardboard, which provides 360 degree views of famous monuments, paintings or street art scenes, allowing users to “stand” before the Valley of the Temples in Italy, or in Van Gogh’s neighborhood in France, creating a global interconnectedness through art.
