Two years ago, we launched an experiment: an online image library where we made 2,000 high-resolution images of artworks that the museum deemed to be in the public domain available for download without any restrictions.  This week, we’ve exceeded ourselves with the launch of our new collections website, giving away ten times the number of images we offered in the initial image library. Nearly 20,000 high-quality images of art from our collection are available to search, download, and use as you see fit.

Ask a Curator Day

lacma:

Over on the twitter, our head curator of contemporary art, Franklin Sirmans, will be answering any question you might have as part of International Ask a Curator Day. You got the Qs, he’s got the As. Tweet us some questions!

(PS - seem like a good time to remind you all that you can always ask us questions via tumblr, too - to be answered by yours truly, or a curator, or whoever else is best fit to answer. No specially designated day required.)
