-In an effort to bring art to the public and make it more available, there are several online collections of artwork that are "open source"​.

 +===== Benefits of Open Source in the Art World ===== 
 +The open source movement allows for the art world to become more accessible and collaborative. As the Internet brings corners of the world closer, it also brings together their artists and influences. Those can seek inspiration from different cultures and artists no matter how far away they are in the digital world. Also the growing amount of open source software projects allow for artists to play around with different mediums and production methods. As a collaboration,​ some artists "​explored new avenues of imaginative expression: incorporating complex interactivity,​ proliferating sumptuous software-generated forms and sophisticated and dazzling audiovisual effects"​ (([[http://​p2pfoundation.net/​World_of_Free_and_Open_Source_Art|"​World of Free and Open Source"​]]//​ P2P Foundation//​)). With other forms of media (photographs,​ film, and audio) available in digital form with open source licensing, there are endless possibilities to sample, manipulate, inspire, and collaborate with others to create.
