Rights and Reproductions

Images from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art's collection are available for research and publication. The museum does not grant permission for use of its images in commercial advertising or for use of images taken from already published material. Photographic materials must be obtained directly from the Rights and Reproductions Department.

Images for reference can be found in publications such as An American Collection: Works from the Amon Carter Museum; An American Album: Highlights from the Collection of the Amon Carter Museum; and The Grand Frontier: Remington and Russell in the Amon Carter Museum. These and other publications on the Carter’s collection are available for reference in the museum library or from the Museum Store.

Prepayment is required in the form of checks payable in U.S. dollars, wire transfers, money orders or credit card. Return the form with your payment and allow 2–4 weeks (after payment is received) for your request to be processed.

Professional journalists may request images to accompany media coverage of the museum, its special exhibitions, and its permanent collection installations from the Public Relations Department.

American Art Collaborative Linked Open Data Initiative

The American Art Collaborative (AAC) is a consortium of fourteen art museums in the United States, including the Amon Carter, committed to establishing a critical mass of linked open data (LOD) on the semantic web.

The Collaborative believes that LOD offers rich potential to increase the understanding of art by expanding access to cultural holdings, by deepening research connections for scholars and curators, and by creating public interfaces for students, teachers, and museum visitors.

Metadata and LOD from the AAC partners is freely available on GitHub:

A complete set of data from the fourteen participating institutions.
Data from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

To design and develop a usable application for exploring the collected data, the project established a Browse Working Group, involving six of the fourteen institutions and led by Design for Context, who developed a demonstration application.
