Google Art Project


In case anyone hasn't heard about this yet, I highly encourage you to check out one of the coolest new websites around, http://www.googleartproject.com. It's a little like google street view, except that it's inside, and it happens to be inside of a bunch of awesome museums. And instead of looking at buildings and trees, you're looking at masterworks, and zooming in on them close enough to see individual brushstrokes, in high resolution, blown up to the size of your hand.
