Google brings world's great artworks to you


Google sure is currying favor with creative agencies lately. It has gotten many shops to do projects showing off its vast array of products and technologies. The latest is a very cool site from WPP's Schematic called Art Project. It's a stunning site that uses Google's Street View, Scholar, Picasa and other products to give visitors a virtual walking tour of 17 museums around the world and 1,000 pieces of art. It's a pretty sweet site that delivers on Google's mission of making the world's information universally accessible. (Of course, whether seeing the world's great art on a computer screen is a decent substitute for seeing it in person is up for debate.) Google's done a bunch of projects in this show-don't-tell mode of marketing, including the Chrome Speed Test (BBH) and The Wilderness Downtown (B-Reel, and others).
