The inception of the Google Art Project has created a more accessible approach to museums, street art and art in general. Following up on the project’s debut which counted 17 museums in nine countries and 1,000 images, at latest count there were over 30,000 high-res artworks with Street View of 46 museums. There will be a continual update to allow global art-goers to visit a plethora of galleries online. Some notable inclusions include the White House (Washington, D.C.), Museum of Islamic Art (Qatar), Santiniketan Triptych (National Gallery of Modern Art, Delhi), Gibbes Museum of Art (Charleston, South Carolina), and the SCAD museum of art (Savannah, Georgia).

Of course Google+ and Hangouts will be integrated into the experience to allow friends from all over to partake in the experience together. Personal commentary on each of the pieces is also available giving you the opportunity to voice your opinion to a global contingency of art fans.
