In collaboration with 17 art museums worldwide, Google has launched the Google Art Project. This impressive online innovation allows you to take virtual tours around these museums and examine famous paintings in high resolution. In celebration of the launch, all venues will be displaying 17 special gigapixel images of their proudest collections.

It's interesting to see Google targeting the artsy crowd. Should Google Art Project be successful, it'd be exciting to see if it will venture further into the creative market targeting other types of artisans.
