Claudia Moscovici (goodreadscomclaudiamoscovici) I'm sure many of you know this already: on February 1, 2011 Google launched a virtual, panoramic tour of some of the most famous museums and works of art internationally. I think this is the wave of the future for museums and galleries alike, as I argue in the article below. What are your opinions about this revolutionary move? How do you think you'll be affected by it, as artists and/or gallery owners?
