Images of Works of Art in Museum Collections: The Experience of Open Access (Review)
Author(s): Kristin Kelly
Publication: A Study of Eleven Museums by Mellon Foundation
Date: 4/25/2013
Abstract: In December 2009, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation organized a meeting of thirteen museum directors to discuss open access to images of works of art in their collections. This meeting was seen as a catalyst for further high-level discussion on the topic; it also prompted several of the museums present to investigate issues surrounding open access. This report describes the current approach of eleven art museums in the US and the UK to the use of images of works of art in their collections, where the underlying works are in the public domain. Each approach is slightly different. By presenting the thought processes and methods of these institutions, this report aims to inform the decision making of other museums that are considering open access to images in their collections. The Walters Art Museum is among these profiled.
