    LACMA Collections - Nearly 20,000 high-res art images available for free - legally!

    I just saw this post pop up on my Tumblr dashboard and thought I'd share it here! Not sure if it's already been posted and sorry if this is in the wrong forum section, more people may see it here? It sounds great to me, and a very quick browse shows some great artworks available on there! It's nice to see a museum doing this actually, instead of hoarding and hiding away their collections in storerooms.

    "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.
