Princeton University Teaching and Research, Spring 2021

The Art Museum is committed to supporting teaching and research on campus and virtually.

The Museum’s online collections are available to search, and images of objects selected for courses are available in three ways—through PowerPoint, by .zip download, and using an online high-resolution viewer. Each of these viewing methods can be shared on Zoom or another remote course platform.

The high-resolution viewer, known as Mirador, allows users to zoom in close to see details of thousands of works of art from across the collections. You can use this feature directly through the Museum’s online collections database by clicking on the object image. The Museum can also assist in preparing a selection of objects for view in Mirador.

In addition, groups of objects from the Museum’s collections that explore specific themes from previous gallery installations and courses are available on the Museum’s website.
