Martin Museum of Art Crowdsourcing Project
The purpose of the Martin Museum of Art Crowdsourcing Project is to discover information on artwork presented from the museum's permanent collection. With a small staff maximizing their time and resources, efficiently researching each piece in the collection becomes difficult with such limitations. We need your assistance in translating and transcribing text, in addition to retrieving identifying information on artwork posted on this site. With this information, the museum can increase our educational resources for students who frequent our collections, the surrounding community, and create a connection between artists and art connoisseurs. Volunteers, such as yourself, make collection's research possible with your detailed observations, mastery of language, and knowledge of art history. Please join us in developing our collection's resources and furthering the mission of the museum. Margaret Hallinan, Graduate Assistant at the Martin Museum of Art, created the project and site as part of her graduate thesis project.
