ArtStor Updates--contemporary art, archaeology, baroque

First images of contemporary art from the Franklin Furnace Archives
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.
