Art Museum Image Consortium (AMICO) was a non-profit organization of institutions with collections of art, collaborating to enable educational use of museum multimedia. It was in existence between 1997 and 2005, when its members decided to disband it.

AMICO provided licensed digital versions of artwork available by subscription to universities and colleges, public libraries, elementary and secondary schools, and museums. It represented works in the collections of AMICO members.

It has to some extent been replaced by ARTstor, which was established in 2004.
