Google has introduced one more of its services. In this case it’s Art Project in which he has worked in recent months along with 17 museums among which are the largest in the world.
In this project, virtual visitors can see one of the usual applications and Google Street but applied to cultural institutions. We move around inside the selected museums, go into their rooms and watch their libraries. In a more specific level of detail, each museum has free access list for a survey is made of certain emblematic works, using photographic technology and super high resolution gigapixel. Each “object” of this type consists of about 14,000 million pixels, allowing natural details as to: the strokes, the load of paint, lights and shadows in the smallest details.
The museums also have provided high-resolution images for a selection of over 1,000 works of art, which includes works by Goya, Hans Holbein, Botticelli, Cezanne, etc..

Maryland is a state rich in African-American ethnic heritage. Did you know that, for example, Harriet Tubman (1820-1913), celebrated as the “Moses the people” by Maryland Civil War Centennial Commission, was born and raised in Buckstown, Maryland, not too far from the crowded tourist attraction of East Ocean City beach? Harriet Tubman Museum and Education Center in Cambridge, MD.
Its ethnic heritage is respected and maintained in a series of interesting museums you should visit with your entire family because of their educational value.
For example, the African Art Museum of Maryland in Columbia, MD is one such important goals. In addition to featuring the best of precious art objects Africa, these museums also conducts educational tours and workshops and organize tours to Africa.

I think this is rather interesting and pretty cool. There is a tattoo parlor / studio / shop what you prefer to call them in Baltimore that is not only a museum but served as a tattoo facility to function. Tattoo studio run by the same name as the Museum, Baltimore Tattoo Museum. The museum is comprised of historic photographs, and articles, and of course there are many colorful tattoo drawings mounted on the wall. The museum is wrapped around the store and began with the early days of tattooing and ending with the current presence of tattoos in the world today.
I think this is great especially since there are many tattoo shops out there. So the important thing to do if you are the owner of a tattoo shop is to make sure that your store is unique and stands out to people. So this idea neatly displays the history of the tattoo shop to help educate people about the art of tattoo and where it comes from. What I think is a wonderful thing. After all, if you have questions about something you’ve seen in the exhibition that it is better to ask than one of the tattoo artists.
So if you are in the Baltimore area and a large tattoo lover or just interested in the history of tattoos be sure to stop by the tattoo shop unique. They are located at 1534 Eastern Avenue in Fells Point. Also I have heard that the staff were very friendly and helpful no matter what you may need or want.
The Baltimore Museum of Art is located in Maryland and is a must for art lovers who come to Baltimore. This exhibition features works from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

We found this place during one of their special events. We live in Calvert County, but hadn’t really heard of it. They do a lot of programming for kids, especially young. Our sons loved the Indian Village that they had there. They are right on the river, perfect for our kids to run around!
