Hood Digitizes Holdings of Native American Art (Valley News)


With the support of a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Hood Museum of Art is digitizing its holdings in Native American Art—nearly 4,000 objects—reports the Valley News.

The goal of the project is to make the art accessible through an online database, the story notes. Katherine Hart, the senior curator of collections and the Barbara C. and Harvey P. Hood 1918 Curator of Academic Programming, tells the Valley News that the digitization is “a further way to share information and create a deeper, better knowledge about these objects.”

A registration may be required to read the full story, published 1/7/15 by the Valley News.
