Exploring the world's art museums from home

Googler Amit Sood chats with CBS This Morning about his work on Google Art Project, an ambitious project using Google technology to make over 30,000 works of art from over 150 museums accessible online to anyone around the world. "It was just a couple of us saying, 'Let’s try it,'" Amit says, "We don’t have anything to lose." Fortunately, it's a big win for art lovers who wish to experience masterworks, like Van Gogh’s Starry Night, but cannot make the trip to the museum.
