Buddha Museum joins Google Arts & Culture

2020-04-02
Since its beginnings in 2011, Google Arts & Culture has grown to over 2,000 cultural institutions from over 80 countries today. The platform features thousands of high-resolution images from more than 1,200 museums globally. Best collections include those by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington. Institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum, New York, The Art Institute of Chicago and New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Whitney Museum of America, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum have uploaded large collections of artworks. Google Arts & Culture has also partnered with institutions around the world, from Korea's National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Gwacheon to the Pinacoteca de São Paulo in Brazil.



Despite the coronavirus outbreak, the doors of the Buddha Museum remain open to visitors. Buddha Museum fans who are restricted to homes, now have an alternative to see the collections and exhibits on the Museum grounds. The Buddha Museum has partnered with Google Arts & Culture and the website is officially launched on April 15th, 2020 (World Art Day). The new Buddha Museum Google Arts & Culture website will feature Museum attractions, Venerable Master Hsing Yun's One-Stroke Calligraphy works, "When Buddha Meets the Gods event", and collections from the 48 underground palaces.
