ARTstor has collaborated with Heritage Preservation to share more than 500 images of community murals in the United States through the Digital Library. These images were collected as part of the Rescue Public Murals project, an initiative of Heritage Preservation to document and conserve murals, as well as increase public awareness about the need to preserve them. The collection includes representative examples of damage to murals, illustrating the deterioration and decay that are endangering their survival.
This collection complements the Community Murals (Timothy Drescher) archive available in ARTstor. Through their joint efforts, Rescue Public Murals and Drescher share a total of 6,120 images of community murals in the Digital Library.
