National Gallery in London- The Grand Tour

Via Eric Kintz's blog a pointer to the London National Gallery's very cool The Grand Tour that is going on for the next twelve weeks. HP(did the reproductions) and many others are making this possible. I am not sure if this is something the National Gallery has done before?

From their site:
"Over the next twelve weeks we're turning the West End into a giant gallery by lining the streets of Soho, Piccadilly, and Covent Garden with some of the world's most famous paintings.

Use the interactive map to find out which paintings are hanging where, and then why not check out one of our walking tours. Just pick the tour you want, print out the map, and if you've got an MP3 player, download the audio guide for the inside information on the paintings. "

Of course- participants of the tour are being encouraged to upload their pictures on flickr. Very cleaver to increase visibility for the Arts and of course for HP.
Wish i was traveling to London in the next twelve weeks!

I didn't know about this. Weird. I'll spend the next few weeks enjoying it, and let you know how it goes!
