    Developed as an “encyclopedic” museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) houses the largest American collection of art west of Chicago. LACMA’s collections represent nearly every human civilization since recorded time; its eclectic holdings span from art of the ancient world to video installations. Two years ago, LACMA made a relatively small number of its image holdings available for free download in an online library. From that beginning of 2,000 images, the museum recently expanded its downloadable collection by tenfold, making 20,000 images of artwork available for free. This represents about a quarter of all the art represented on LACMA’s site. The museum has chosen images of artworks it believes to be in the public domain and developed a robust digital archive with a richer search function than most museums. LACMA’s online collection (80,000 images altogether, including restricted and unrestricted use) is sorted by the usual curatorial terms (“American Art,” “Art of the Pacific” and so on), but that’s just one of many filtering options. The collection can be searched more narrowly by object type and curatorial area. There’s also an option to search by what’s presently on view. This choice allows users to zero-in on a specific building or floor of the museum’s eight buildings. The collection can also be entered according to chronological era, from 10,000 BCE to present day.
    ArtThink
    http://www.sfmoma.org/artthink/
