Winterthur, Museum, Garden & Library announced a $35,000 Art Works grant recommendation from the National Endowment for the Arts to digitize 1,500 important works of art on paper.

The project is part of a Winterthur initiative to thoroughly document its collection, upgrade its cataloguing content, and provide broad access through museumcollection.winterthur.org.

Much of the collection that will be digitized lies in storage, enabling Winterthur to document an important but hidden part of its significant and frequently used collection.

“We are grateful to NEA for recommending funding for this important project, which will not only exponentially increase access to works by staff, graduate students, researchers and the public, but also likely lead to an increase in applicants to Winterthur’s Research Fellowship Program,” Winterthur director of collections Linda Eaton said in a statement.
