For the first time in history it is easy for non-specialists to explore and closely examine art from museums across the globe on a single website
In many ways, scholarship at its best is conversation. But up until now, museums have conversed very little with one another—either on or offline.
Now that the value of a global art platform is evident, will museums think differently about sharing resources with each other and the public? The Google Art Project shows what can happen when museums work in parallel; now imagine what could happen if museums choose to work together.
