The new Open Gallery Initiative is part of Google's Cultural Institute, and allows museums and galleries to enhance their existing website, or create a new one for free. Open Gallery will help parties develop extremely high-resolutions images of their exhibits so that visitors can zoom in on paintings and see each individual brush stroke the artist left behind. Entry into the program is on a Google-selected basis at the moment, and interested parties can visit the source link below to sign up to be considered.
