Finding Sculptures

Inventories of American Painting and Sculpture

SOS volunteers collected data on more than 32,000 publicly accessible outdoor sculptures across the United States. The information they gathered has been added to the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Inventories of American Painting and Sculpture, a database of over 400,000 artworks, including indoor and outdoor sculpture.

To search the Inventories database for outdoor sculpture online, visit http://americanart.si.edu/research/.

To visit the entire Inventories database online, go to http://www.siris.si.edu.

You may also search the Inventory of American Sculpture (IAS) database for artworks that have received conservation treatment.

New works: To report a work to the Inventories of American Painting and Sculpture, visit the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s web site at http://www.americanart.si.edu/research/programs/ – click on “Inventories of American Painting and Sculpture” and then click on “Report Artworks.”
