Collections Stewardship

Wesleyan University's Davison Art Center will perform high-quality, rapid digital photography of key parts of its collections, prepare those images for collection management and educational access, and place many of them online for public viewing and aggregation. The project will create 4,000 to 5,000 digital images to support institutional stewardship of the collection, and provide access to visual documentation of a significant number of objects. The Davison Art Center's collection of prints and photographs represent European and American artists from the 15th century onwards, and by adding these images to their website, the museum will be able to achieve their strategic goals.
