OK, am I the last one to this party!? Did you all already know about this?
I'm at work, having lunch, and my son just made me aware of the Google Art Project! I can't tell you how thrilled I am. Some of you may already be aware of it, but this is news to me, and I love it.
What an amazing idea: we will all have the possibility of intimate views of art masterpieces. Think Google Street Views in the world of art. Think armchair-traveling to the world's finest museums in your own home: the Frick Collection, the Rijksmuseum, The Uffizi Gallery, MOMA, Versailles, the Tate, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Van Gogh Museum, etc...
...or, well, I should say,... Google.
Way to go, Google. (Can you tell how excited I am??)
And on a totally unrelated note, if Eric's dad was still alive, today would be his birthday. Happy Birthday, Bob, wherever you are.
