Google Arts & Culture

A fabulous online resource of Arts & Culture. Browse the galleries of Artists, Mediums, Art Movements, Historical Events and Historical Figures. Explore by Time and Colour or focus in on the contents of a particular gallery – the Museo Reina Sofia in Spain, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Uffizi Gallery in Italy or the Steve Biko Foundation in South Africa for example.

Don’t know where to begin? Try the weekly Google Arts & Culture Highlights for inspiration. You could lose yourself for hours in these beautifully designed collections. Rich in pictures and sparing with text, they give you just enough to whet your appetite and hold your interest.

What’s more this is a free resource and while going to actual museums and galleries is off limits, it’s a pretty good substitute.
