Archives of American Art Symposium on American Art History and Digital Scholarship

Please join us on November 15, 2013 for the symposium American Art History and Digital Scholarship: New Avenues for Exploration organized by the Archives of American Art and generously supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art. The purpose of the symposium is to convene scholars, curators, archivists, librarians, graduate students, technical experts, and the public to consider American art history in a digital world.  We will examine ways to integrate digital tools and/or resources into the study of American art and to encourage collaboration.
