Description
On November 11, 2014 the Bowdoin College Museum of Art launched its first-ever virtual exhibition, "Fifty Years Later: The Portrayal of the Negro in American Painting - A Digital Exhibition," created to commemorate its 1964 exhibition entitled "The Portrayal of the Negro in American Painting." The website for the virtual exhibition is bcma.bowdoinimg.net/index.html. The three principal editors of the virtual exhibition were: Sarah Montross, Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellow; Dana E. Byrd, assistant professor of Art History; and Jack Jen Gieseking, new media and data visualization specialist, Digital and Computational Studies Initiative. Students in Professor Byrd's Spring 2014 course, "Race and Representation in American Art" (ARTH 3600), provided much of the site's content. Numerous student researchers were also involved: Shannon Brady '16, James Denison '14, Auburn Gonzales '15, Taylor Guiffre '14, Amanda Montenegro '14, Alexandra N'Diaye '15, Alex Pigott '14, Anna Prohl '14, Emily Stewart '16, Elisabeth Strayer '15, and Gretchen Williams '14. Cody Stack '16 was the lead designer of the website. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation was a generous supporter of this digital initiative. This image shows many of the individuals named above as they gathered in the Museum's Conference Room on November 19 to celebrate and discuss the website's successful launch.
