TED Thursday: Art Accessible Today…

Dear readers, I apologize for the lateness of this week TED Thursday post; I simply lost track of time… Hope you enjoy this one!

Every Thursday I will be choosing and posting a TED Talk that I think should be shared with you. I will not go at length about the benefits of it; they speak for themselves! Instead, I will provide you with the quick presentation blurb for it from TED Talk. You take it from here! This week, the TED Talk I choose to share with you is:

Every piece of art you’ve ever wanted to see – up close and searchable
with Amit Sood

What does a cultural Big Bang look like? For Amit Sood, director of Google’s Cultural Institute and Art Project, it’s an online platform where anyone can explore the world’s greatest collections of art and artifacts in vivid, lifelike detail. Join Sood and Google artist in residence Cyril Diagne in a mind-bending demo of experiments from the Cultural Institute and glimpse the exciting future of accessibility to arts and culture.

I seriously freaked out a little bit with this one! This is an awesome project for anybody that is into the arts and into lifelong learning. I am thrilled obviously and will schedule myself some special virtual museum visiting time. Check out Google’s Cultural Institute Art Project website for more information on this particular project (and explore to see more of them) or visit their main site for a more visual approach to explore what they do.
