Google Expands Art Project To 10,000 Works

Thanks to the latest expansion of Google's Art Project, we now live in an age where we can take in the wonders of over 10,000 pieces of artwork from 34 countries while sipping on a mug of tea in our pants. 

In June 2014, Google added some 5,000 street art pieces to its Art Project, placing emphasis on capturing the world of street art before it was removed, vandalised or washed away. As of this week, that number has been doubled, thanks to new relationships with over 80 artistic and creative organisations. Using the annotated maps of the Google Cultural Institute, you can now wander the streets of London's East End, get lost in Los Angeles’ Winston Street and visit outdoor exhibits in Dulwich, Berlin and New York City.

Culturally expansive, impressive, accessible - we're going to need to come up with a very good excuse for killing future evenings watching videos of cats falling off tables when there's a world of art only a click away.
