Indiana University and Uffizi Gallery Partnership

Jackie sent me a story about the partnership, and we just got an official announcement at work. Very cool!

“The project between the Uffizi, one of the oldest and most renowned art museums in the world, and IU’s Virtual World Heritage Laboratory will create high-resolution 3-D digital models of the Uffizi sculptures and make them freely available online by IU’s bicentennial in 2020.”

  2. It is! Thanks for calling it to my attention. I don’t think the library will have anything to do with it. It sounds like strictly an fine arts project, which makes sense.
