Images from the University of Cincinnati Libraries Digital Collections, including architectural photographs by Alice Weston, are available in LUNA Commons:
Environmental artist Alice Weston photographed many of the houses in this collection in the 1990s for the publication Great Houses of the Queen City : Two Hundred Years of Historic and Contemporary Architecture and Interiors in Cincinnati, text by Walter E. Langsam, 1997. This collection of over 1400 images includes not only the photographs seen the book, but many more interior and exterior views as well as other properties not included in the publication.

Today is World AIDS Day 2010.
“The Estate Collection is a database of high quality images representing the works of artists with HIV/AIDS. With the ability to find and see these works of art in detail, the Estate Project will ensure continued access, presentation, and study of the cultural legacy created by the artistic community during the AIDS crisis. The images are drawn from the collections of Visual AIDS, Visual AIDS/Boston, Visual Aid/San Francisco, and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Community Center.”

In honor of the upcoming holiday weekend, check out the Farber Gravestone Collection in LUNA Commons:
The Farber Gravestone Collection is an unusual resource documenting the sculpture on over 9,000 gravestones most of which were made prior to 1800… These early stones are both a significant form of artistic creation and precious records of biographical information, now subject to vandalism and to deterioration from the environment.
Or get costume-inspired by browsing images in ARTstor. Marilyn Monroe? Spooky bride? Witch teacher? Zombie/punk on the CTA? Cat/sad pumpkin? The possibilities are endless!
