Since many people are all stuck in Coronavirus lockdowns all over the world at the moment, so I thought I’d have a go at creating a virtual art gallery in Google Data Studio!
The Virtual Art Gallery
Below, for your enjoyment, is a virtual art gallery!
It uses a large public data set from the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) in New York.
The Data Source
Below is what the data set looks like in Google Data Studio. The only field you need to create is the Image field using the IMAGE formula = IMAGE(image url).
Unfortunately many of the fields are blank and there is no data listed for many of the images. On page three of the report I’ve created a list of artworks but much of the data is listed as ‘null’ because it doesn’t exist.
I hope you found this interesting and enjoyed visiting the virtual Art Gallery in Google Data Studio! For those wondering, the photos in the background were taken at the wonderful National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Ontario.
You can also venture into Room 2 if you dare…
