For the class of INF 115, we were introduced to Google’s Arts & Culture.

This Google feature is new to me and very much interesting.

For the class, we had to create a gallery and curate artworks that we like. I chose to curate artworks done by women.

Women are oftentimes looked upon in the art industry, in fact, women were once deprived from art centuries ago. I chose to to curate artworks solely created by women to bring attention to the importance of women in the arts, as they too have been (and still are) pioneers, innovators, and simply great Artists. Through my gallery, I want to showcase the timeless talent and innovation women have in art.
