They're joining forces to promote a new project allowing anyone around the world to zoom into 48 digitized pieces of art from Puerto Rican artists. The preservation effort is made possible with Google Arts & Culture's "Art Camera" technology, which allows for a close-up, digital examination of paintings.

The artwork for this collection comes from Puerto Rican art institutions, including Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña (ICP), Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, Museo de Arte de Ponce, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico. People can also visit the museums in person to view curated exhibits and learn more about the collections on display in the digital project.  Read more...
