Museum and Art Collections

The museums listed below are good resources to start exploring artworks and collections. Browsing collections can be a great way to find artworks you're interested in exploring further. These collection websites often provide useful information about the object (size, material, date), provenance (the history of an artworks ownership), and even artist information.

The Benton Museum of Art at Pomona is a great resource to use in your research. The museum has Latin American art in its collections, so as you're thinking of developing a topic, it could be a great opportunity to study art first-hand!
