KANSAS CITY — The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City is now part of Google's worldwide art project.

Google's Art Project initiative provides access to more than 30,000 ultra-high resolution images of paintings, sculptures and photographs from 151 museums and other institutions in 40 countries.

The museum said in a release Wednesday that more than 200 of its permanent works are accessible through the project for online visitors.

Google Art Project began in February 2011 with about 1,000 artworks from such institutions as the Tate Gallery in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
