You can now access and download 30,000 images from The Cleveland Museum of Art’s collection via DIY Photography

August 22nd, 2019 No comments

It’s becoming more and more common for museums to digitize their collections. The latest one to join the trend is The Cleveland Museum of Art. After digitizing its collection, it made it publicly accessible online, with 30,000 images free for download and remix.

The CMA has shared the images from its permanent collection that are in the public domain open access. This means that you can download, share, reproduce, reuse and remix the images for scholarly, non-commercial, but also commercial purposes.

The CMA’s director, William Griswold, said in a statement regarding this project:

The Library of Congress Makes Thousands of Fabulous Photos, Posters & Images Free to Use & Reuse via Open Culture

Another great collection of free-to-use imagery care of your very own Library of Congress. Your tax dollars (and history) at work! — Douglas
 
The history of the venerable Library of Congress demonstrates the vast importance that the founders of the U.S. accorded to reading and studying. It may be one of the country’s most durable institutions, “the oldest federal cultural institution in the nation,” it proclaims. While partisan rancor, war, and violence recur, the LoC has stolidly held an ever-increasingly diverse collection of artifacts sitting peacefully alongside each other on several hundred miles of shelves, a monument to the life of the mind that ought to get more attention.

Lichen Up Close

Lichen Up Close

Sometimes observing nature isn’t always about taking in sweeping, scenic, panoramas, but rather about getting up close and personal with it. There is as much to be seen in the micro as in the macro. These lichen caught my attention and I spent s verbal minutes photographing and observing them. You never know what may catch your eye when in nature.
