Log Number: MH-249621-OMS-21
The Amistad Research Center (ARC) will build capacity to enhance collections stewardship. Project activities include hiring a part-time visual arts curator to create onsite and digital exhibitions and interpretative programming, retaining a part-time registrar to implement policies and collections management according to ARC's registration system and purchasing a web kiosk and hosting services for collections management. The immediate impact is that ARC will have a visual art curator and registrar to implement a comprehensive collection management process and address preservation and conservation needs. The project will enable ARC to increase access to its fine art collection to researchers, cultural heritage institutions seeking loans for exhibitions, and educators.
