The Art Institute of Chicago’s website now offers an online gallery of downloadable art… and a ton of it is easily recognizable.
Use In Escape Rooms
Whether you’re looking to create an art heist, hide a message in a painting, or simply add art to the space, there are plenty of uses for this gallery in escape room design.
There are a lot of iconic works in this gallery including:
- A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat
- The Bedroom, Vincent van Gogh
- American Gothic, Grant Wood
- Under the Wave off Kanagaw, Katsushika Hokusai 葛飾 北斎
Much of the work is in the public domain, so you’re completely free to print, edit, or do anything you like, even for commercial purposes. That said, not all of it has crossed the public domain threshold, so check the copyright notice on each work of art.
To make things easier, I applied the “Public Domain” search filter to this link.
Or you can view the full gallery; it is lovely.
