Art Museum partners with Google Art for online project

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Art Museum is partnering with Google Art for an online mapping project.

Google Art Project will photograph and virtually map works of art featured in the Cincinnati Art Museum. This technology allows more people around the world to explore the museum's paintings, sculptors and other objects in never-before-seen angles and in great detail with just the click of a mouse.

Currently, there are 270 works from the Art Museum's collection highlights handbook available on the Google Art site.

By placing a sampling of the museum's works online, the Cincinnati Art Museum aims to encourage educators, students and art enthusiasts to come experience other works of art that are offline.

Visitors to the Google Art Project can browse 40,000 high resolution objects by artist's name, the type of art, the museum, the country, collections and the time period.
