I found these websites I am writing about while making PowerPoints for my teaching training at Western Kentucky University. Some require a link back to the artist (for website logos, etc.) and others require only an email of thanks to the photographer (for original photos). So while some sites are free, you just might sometimes need to do a few things to be able to use the artwork.

The best thing about public domain artwork is that most of it can be used for any project. It can also be changed or redone. You can also use part of each image to make something new.

As a general definition, artwork in the public domain is published art after 1924. The original copyright holder(s) are gone, and/or they did not fill out the required paperwork to extend the original copyright. This art is sometimes now free for public use.

Most public domain sites let you use the artwork for anything, and many give it away for free - - but make sure you check first to make sure that this is the story for each site you visit.

Some sites have found public domain art and have published them with copyright. For this reason, you should read all the fine print on the site (FAQs etc.) , just in case.
