When artwork that once belonged to the late bestselling author Michael Crichton hits the auction block in May, the works by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Pablo Picasso and others will combine for one of the most high-profile art sales of the season. The sale, being organized by Christie's, will feature approximately 100 works of art, or about 80% of the writer's personal collection. The sale also comes with a back story that, given Crichton's main line of work, would make a good novel.

Google has launched a new online tool to allow museums, galleries and individuals to create online art exhibitions. Google Open Gallery became available for public use this week, though potential users must request an invitation from Google to use the free service. The new application will allow galleries, museums and other individuals to upload content and create virtual exhibitions and tours. It also enables organizations to publish a new site or add on to an existing site. In addition, the service provides users the capability of adding background information that visitors would normally see at an actual exhibition.
