Welcome to WikiProject Cleveland Museum of Art! This WikiProject serves as a hub for improving the status of CMA works on Wikidata, and for documenting the coverage and quality of existing items.

Project background[edit]

On January 23, 2019, the Cleveland Museum of Art announced its conversion into an Open Access institution. The Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication was assigned for the Museum's images and data.

At the Cleveland Museum of Art, Open Access means the public now has the ability to share, collaborate, remix, and reuse images of as many as 30,000 public- domain artworks from the CMA’s world-renowned collection of art for commercial and non-commercial purposes. In addition, portions of collections information (metadata) for more than 61,000 artworks, both in the public domain and those works with copyright or other restrictions, works are now available.

In June 2019, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Ohio Wikimedians User Group, and Neal Stimler (who had previously led the implementation of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Open Access program) started collaborating to start this WikiProject dedicated to improving Wikipedia with photos provided by the CMA, as well as improving articles related to the Museum, its artworks, and artists featured prominently in its collections.
