Open Access Launch Partnerships
The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) announced on January 23, 2019, that it is an Open Access institution, using the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) designation to make available for unrestricted use more than 30,000 high-resolution images and information (metadata) related to more than 61,000 collection objects. Visit the Open Access homepage for details and resources.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is significantly joined in this initiative by regional, national and international content partners. The CMA's open access initiative is supported too by sponsors whose critical philanthropy and technology have greatly contributed in bringing these resources to the public to create transformative experiences through art "for the benefit of all the people forever."
The Cleveland Museum of Art's Open Access content partners and sponsors include art world, academic, commercial, community, and technology organizations. The CMA treats these partnerships as a critical component of Open Access. Partnerships build community, provide demonstrable examples of the benefits of open access broadly and magnify impact and reach beyond the CMA’s own platforms. Partnerships place the CMA's Open Access content directly in the hands of users who can create, remix and share their engagement with the collection and associated information. The Cleveland Museum of Art is grateful to its content partners and sponsors in this initiative. The CMA appreciates and recognizes the vital contributions to not only expanding access to, but inspiring use of its high quality, encyclopedic collections.
