Pinacoteca and MAM join Google Art

 The Pinacoteca do Estado and the MAM-SP (Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo) became part of the privileged list of international museums that comprises the Google Art Project along with other museums such as London's Tate and the Reina Sofia in Madrid.
So far 17 institutions worldwide comprised the list. The announcement of the second phase, which includes the Brazilian museums, will be made at an event in the Pinacoteca on Tuesday.
Google's initiative (googleartproject.com) was launched about a year ago and allows internet users to visit the museums' galleries online and see a selection of works in an amazing resolution of up to 7 billion pixels.
Google Street View's technology allows the visit to the galleries. The tool allows users to "walk" virtually by streets of hundreds of cities in the world.
Google says it did not participate in any curatorship process to select the galleries and works - the museums chose what works to exhibit.
As reported by Folha, it will be possible to see online the collection on the second floor of Pinacoteca's headquarters (downtown São Paulo), which was recently renewed.
MAM-SP, on the other hand, does not have a permanent place to hold its collection, and will allow visits to the 32nd Panorama of Brazilian Art, held between October and December 2011.
In both museums, the works also will be available in large format.
