ArtStor hosting our Archivision slides

Marilyn sent this note earlier

I am pleased to announce that Archivision Base, Module 1 and Module 2 collections - a total of 30,000 high quality architecture, landscape architecture and public art images - are now live in ARTstor for the convenience of the University of Calgary community! University of Calgary users may use these images as they would any ARTstor image. You will see this collection listed along with the others on the Welcome Page under the heading “Institutional Collections.”

Give this a whirl, especially if you haven't tried ArtStor before. It isnt' just for art remember, its also a great source of images for instruction and presentations.

Sadly, you can't then post your presentation to a public web page. Curse those copyright kill joys.

ArtStor Updates--contemporary art, archaeology, baroque

More than 600 images from the Franklin Furnace Archives are now available in the ARTstor Digital Library. These images depict events presented and produced by Franklin Furnace, and include works by Guillaume Bijl, Willie Cole, Karen Finley, Teh–Ching Hsieh, Liza Lou, Robbie McCauley, Ana Mendieta, and Shirin Neshat.

Additional images from the Carnegie Institution of Washington Photographs of Mayan Excavations (Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University)
ARTstor has added more than 14,000 images of Mayan excavations from the renowned photographic archives of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, which documents archaeological excavations throughout Central America.

Renaissance and Baroque architecture and sculpture from the Ralph Lieberman Archive (Harvard University)
Harvard University is collaborating with ARTstor to digitize and distribute approximately 3,500 images of Renaissance and Baroque architecture and sculpture photographed by Ralph Lieberman. A majority of the images document architecture and sculpture in Italy, but the collection will also include sites in other European countries, such as Germany and Spain.
