Cheekwood creates, organizes, and disseminates a broad range of digital images and data that document the rich history of the museum. Images of artworks in the Museum’s collection fall into two categories:
- images of works the museum believes to be in the public domain, or those to which the museum waives any copyright it might have. Public- domain works from the The Cheekwood Collections can be downloaded, shared, and remixed without restriction.
- images of works the museum knows to be under copyright or other restrictions. To request images for artworks under copyright or other restrictions, or to request an image not available on our website, please contact the museum at email@example.com.
