Google Art Project Gives Access to Masterpieces

Art Project, powered by Google is a new way to experience artwork in some of the world's most famous galleries and museums.  Much in the same way Google Street View allows you to roam the streets of towns and cities, Art Project allows you to roam the halls of museums.  When you come across an artwork you want a closer view of, just click on it and see a high-res, zoomable version.  Very cool, but I can't help but think this type of technology will enable people to experience culture from their couch rather than getting out and visiting the museums themselves.
