Google has unveiled a massive online collection of U.S. Latino art, culture and history. The exhibit created by the Google Cultural Institute is titled Google Arts & Culture: Latino Cultures in the US, and it showcases collections such as “Celebrating our Latinidad”, “Freedom Tower, Tower of Hope” and “LGBTQ + Collections”.
Google collaborated with about 50 institutions, including the Smithsonian Latino Center, UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, California State Archives, and Miami Dade College. The collection features more than 2,500 pieces of art through 90 exhibits. (Google is also creating curriculums so that more students can learn about Latino history, the company reports.)

Google’s platform allows users around the world to have an immersive way to experience art, history and culture. “The Latino Cultures in the US” exhibit debuted just in time for Hispanic Heritage Month, sharing with the world stories of Latino history, art and culture in the U.S, a community and culture that has often been underrepresented. Hispanic Heritage Month begins Sept. 15 and continues through Oct. 15.
