Looking for digital images for your students to use in projects? The Metropolitan Museum of Art has made thousands of public domain images available.
On February 7, 2017, The Metropolitan Museum of Art implemented a new policy known as Open Access, which makes images of artworks it believes to be in the public domain widely and freely available for unrestricted use, and at no cost…We encourage you to explore the images of artworks the Museum believes to be in the public domain by visiting Collection and selecting the “Public Domain Artworks” filter in the left-hand column.
The featured image is a silk dress from the 1750s from the collection that is not currently on display. For more information on the availability of images (and data from images that are still restricted), read the rest of their post here.
