Innovative Project Enables Online Audiences to Explore Great Museums around the World
Jerusalem, Israel, April 3, 2012 – The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, has today joined the Google Art Project (www.googleartproject.com), making its galleries and hundreds of highlights from its permanent collection accessible online to audiences around the world. The partnership is part of a major global expansion of the project which now counts 151 partners in 40 countries, an increase from 17 museums in nine countries when the project first launched in February 2011. More than 30,000 high resolution objects held in museums around the world are now available for viewing, up from the original 1,000 when the project was first launched.
The Google Art Project features 520 of the most important objects in the Israel Museum's expansive collections, with high resolution images that allow viewers to examine works in exceptional detail, together with background information on objects and artists. Visitors may also explore the Museum's campus and permanent galleries virtually, using Google's Street View technology.
