Lin-Manuel Miranda Partners with Google to Digitize Art From Major Puerto Rican Museums

From Artforum:

Google Arts & Culture is teaming up with the Tony Award–winning composer, singer, actor, playwright, and producer Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, and his father, Luis Miranda Jr., to make Puerto Rico’s art holdings more accessible to people across the globe. The initiative will focus on digitizing the collections of four of the island’s major museums: the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña (ICP), the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico, the Museo de Arte de Ponce, and the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico.
