The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Walker Art Center have collaborated on a website, called Art Finder, which allows access to images of thousands of items in their collections. You can search and/or use drop-down lists to narrow results. AnĀ Art Finder Video Tour is also available. In order to get access to PowerPoint-sized images, you must click on a thumbnail image then click on the link at the right that says “Printable Image”. This will open a larger image in a new window. Right-click (Windows) or ctrl-click (Mac) to save the image to a location of your choosing. Note that approximately 4,500 image from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts are in ARTstor, but Art Finder contains more than 20,000 images.
