How to Access Digital Images

A large percentage of the Museum’s collection has been digitized, and high-quality images are available for faculty to use for teaching in the classroom or to post on Moodle for course assignments. These thousands of images are not currently available through a single portal, but faculty can access images through one of the links provided here. 

Contact Charlene Shang Miller, Associate Educator for Academic Programs (, for additional assistance in locating images. 



You can find images of works of art in the Museum's collection that are not copyright restricted. 


Over 3,000 images of works of art in the Museum's collection are available via ARTstor. To view the ARTstor digital library, you must be affiliated with a participating nonprofit institution (university, college, museum, public library, or K-12 school). New images from our collection are being added regularly.

LUNA INSIGHT Image Database

This database is managed by Smith College’s Imaging Center (not the Museum) and is available only to the Smith community. LUNA contains high-resolution digital images of approximately 14,000 SCMA images and 372,000 images from other collections. New images from SCMA are being added through the collection digitization program on a regular basis. Smith faculty may request that specific SCMA images be added as needed for teaching. Smith community members may access LUNA through their computers. For questions or help with LUNA, please contact the Imaging Center.
