A lot of great image collections have been crossing my desktop these days, all of them worthy of a look around and a book mark.
The first comes from good ole Massachusetts, specifically the Peabody Essex Museum (which any eastern Mass. middle-schooler is sure to be familiar with). They have developed Artscape, an interactive discovery tool. You can explore the collections and book mark them for the future. The PEM has great early American arts and crafts, maritime art, and Asian art colelctions.
The second resource is the Smithsonian’s Collections Search Center. Here you can search all of the Museum, Archive, and library collections in all Smithsonian institutions. The collections include Fine Art, natural History, Native American History, and the ever exciting Air and Space collections. If you are looking for images be sure to check the box to “Only return results with online media”. Collections can also be browsed by going to the the About page. The images are well tagged and cataloging making the site easy to explore.
