If this works, perhaps the Getty would be willing to join in.  They have huge funding and are not interested in profits etc. They are also very interested in education and have some in-house ed programs. They are not included in the Google Art Project. Maybe someone (with a bigger name than mine) could ask them.... after we have it started and know it will work.
