Collections Access Project
As of July 2014 online visitors can now learn more about the works of art and artists in our collection, thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The July 2012 grant allowed us to expand our existing online initiative over the course of two years by including in depth content for about 90 European and Contemporary objects. Each selected object has a publication quality photograph, an essay that offers the object’s artistic and historical context, plus its provenance and exhibition history from the museum's files.
In addition to featuring these selected objects, the museum has updated all of its 2,500 artist records. For the first time, online visitors can search these records for artists and easily find all of their objects in the Currier’s collection. Records for local artists represented in the collection also have a short biography about the artist.
Make sure to stop by to view the latest information added to the database! If you do, we encourage you to take our survey and let us know your thoughts.
