Google Cultural Institute aims to help museums and cultural institutions put their collections online and make them more accessible to a global audience and now includes six million works of art from the collections of more than a thousand museums and cultural institutions in seventy countries. It was launched in 2011 with digital reproductions of artworks from seventeen museums.
Participating institutions include the Academy of Fine Arts and Literature in New Delhi, the Afro Brasil Museum in São Paulo, the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, as well as cultural sites such as the Palace of Versailles, St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, and the Bayon temple in Angkor, Cambodia.
Visitors to the GCI website can browse collections, explore projects such as Art Project, Historic Moments, Women in Culture and view featured exhibits, and/or search exhibits by location or institution. The site also enables visitors to “compare” two works or documents side by side by dragging and dropping items into a module at the bottom of the page.
