On March 4th Google announced on its blog a series of what it is calling “Art Talks.” Google writes:

“Each month, curators, museum directors, historians and educators from some of the world’s most renowned cultural institutions will reveal the hidden stories particular works, examine the curation process and provide insights into particular masterpieces or artists.”

 
Each talk will be done live on the GoogleArt Google+ page and will then be catalogued on the GoogleArt YouTube page. The line-up thus far looks like this:
These talks appear to be valuable both as classroom aids and professional development for art teachers. Art teachers out there, let us know what you think in the comments!
