We began the Artstor Blog in 2007 as a way to share collection news with our community. Over the years we’ve expanded it to include tips, collection highlights, videos, staff contributions, and guest posts from teachers, scholars, artists, and collection contributors.

As of today, we’ve logged more than half a million views. We’re grateful for your support – and we strive to improve. We have big plans for Artstor’s 10th anniversary that we think you will enjoy, and we’re always open to your suggestions.
