As part of the Google Art Project website, NY museums The Museum of Modern Art, the Frick Collection, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art will feature some of the 32,000 works of art included in the project from 151 institutions around the world. The works consist of anything from aboriginal rock art to textiles, glass and ceramics.

The project aims to make art more accessible, and allows commenting by viewers, personalized galleries, and additional educational options. The DIY feature links users to 10 different art education sites, including the Met’s Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History.
