Since its new building opened in 2005, Duke University's Nasher Museum of Art (formerly known as the Duke University Museum of Art) has welcomed more than one million visitors through its doors. For those outside the Durham area, the Nasher Museum also has a sizable digital database where readers can explore more than 6,000 items in the museum's holdings. Here, readers can browse collections, such as "Art of the Americas" with over 1,700 objects from "nearly every culture of pre-Columbian Latin America," more than 800 examples from their photography collection, and over 400 antiquities from Greece, Rome, Egypt, and Etruria. Visitors can also browse the database by categories or people via the menu on the left, and the database is searchable by either objects or people with a variety of subfields. Those doing research can create a free login to be able to save their own groups of items as either public or private collections.
