114 cultural institutions have joined the 2019 ‘#ColorOurCollections’ project, which was initiated in 2016 by The New York Academy of Medicine Library.

This weeklong coloring fest, held between 4 and 8 February 2019, saw museums, libraries, and other cultural bodies from around the world share materials from their collections to social media platforms. The organizations encouraged free download of these materials for use as coloring pages.

2019’s participants include the Auckland Museum, Pratt Institute, British Library, Newberry Library, Washington University Libraries Julian Edison Department of Special Collections, and many more. The full list of participants can be found here.

Preview some artworks from the 2019 project below and see more on the ‘#ColorOurCollections’ website.
