Google recently launched the Data Center Mural Project as part of an effort to make better use of its massive data centers. Although data centers play an enormous role in our lives each day, these buildings are often stark and windowless, with no real charm or character. Now Google is using these building as blank canvases for beautiful artwork.

The Data Center Mural Project is a partnership between Google and local artists. The project allows artists to use the buildings as blank canvases for beautiful murals that reflect that endless amounts of data traveling through the centers each day. The hope is that the new artwork will help to integrate the data centers into the community and bring public attention to buildings that are usually ignored.
