CAMIO® (Catalog of Art Museum Images Online, hosted by OCLC) is an online resource for images from a number of prominant museums. You can perform searches across the site or from only a selected number of institutions, or browse by institution or work type. Every work in CAMIO is represented by at least one high-resolution image (link found at the top of a record) and a description; many have additional views of the work, sound, video and curatorial notes.

The LA Times reports that the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has put in an offer to take over both branches of the financially-struggling Museum of Contemporary Art. The offer letter, from LACMA Director Michael Govan and the two board co-chairs, was dated February 24 and in response to MOCA’s initial request for a merger of the institutions.
The 10-day journey begins tonight for the huge boulder from a Riverside quarry destined as the centerpiece of Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass at LACMA. It is so huge it has to travel on a custom-built transporter that requires road and utility accommodations throughout the trip (it’s nearly 3 traffic lanes wide!), and must take a very circuitous route for safey. As it can only move at 5mph, all travel will take place at night. During the day it will be shrink-wrapped.
