Blanton Museum Now Online: From Plaster Casts to Cowboys etc. in 17,000 Searchable Pics

John Goodyear, Rapid Reflect, 1966 (detail)

The Blanton Museum in Austin has announced the online launch of a massive digitization project: 17,000 images and  attendant info about objects in their permanent collection are now accessible through the museum’s soon-to-be-redesigned website.  In addition to free range browsing, the Blanton has organized their pics into 122 “portfolios” some grouped by place of origin and chronology, others by exhibition, and a few oddballs like “Plaster Casts” and “Cowboys, etc.”
