Google to take African art like this art online to reach out to many people all over the world

Google Art Project is partnering with South African National Gallery and Wit Rock Art Research Institute to launch an online art museum for the people around the world.

Pretoria / NationalTurk – The proposed online museum will feature arts from the Giant Nature Reserve, ancient African cave paintings as well as several works by artists like Sophie Peters, Thami Mnyele and Alexia Preller and many more artists from the continent.

The Art Project includes more thousands of artwork from 46 museums across the world. Virtual users can access pictures of African art work and those from other countries via that yet to be launched site.

The head of communications for Sub-Saharan Africa Dr. Julie Taylor stressed the need for the African Arts industry to get international recognition and make its rich and beautiful works to the world.

“Through the art project, we are aiming to bring local history and culture online and make it accessible for people around the world’’, Dr. Taylor said.

Google provides G+ integration for users to conduct virtual exploration of galleries from Google maps as well as custom galleries of their own to share with friends.

Art lovers are encouraged to make a pilgrimage of these sites online and not only will visitors have a life-changing journey into African past, they will be helping to preserve Africa’s priceless heritage for future generations.

Those who are interested in this project can keep following the NationalTurk site as we monitor events closely and bring any update on the projects to our cherished readers around the world.
