The Metropolitan Museum of Art: Exhibition Installation Photographs


The ARTstor Digital Library and the Metropolitan Museum of Art have collaborated to share more than 8,000 images of special exhibition installation views from 1970-2008. The images document loan exhibitions, gallery views, and objects. This material provides valuable documentation of pivotal exhibitions held at the museum for nearly four decades.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the most comprehensive art museum in the western hemisphere, with more than two million works of art in its permanent collection. Its collections span 5,000 years of world culture from every part of the globe. The museum was founded in 1870 with a mission to collect, preserve, and display works of art, and to educate the public about art.
