You Can Download and Use Even More of Cleveland Museum of Art's Works for Free

In January, the Cleveland Museum of Art announced that 30,000 of its artworks were added to the public domain. This week, the museum more than doubled that figure, meaning anyone for any reason can now share and use 61,000 high resolution images of some of the most famous artworks on the planet for free.

CMA is one of the few museums in the world to offer such openness with its collection. Directly access and download all artwork from the museum right here. 

Check out some of our favorite paintings, sculptures and drawings from the museum's collection in this slideshow.
