Development of a website showcasing Gallup, New Mexico’s collection of New Deal art.

gallupARTS proposes to design a website showcasing Gallup, NM’s unique collection of New Deal art. A New Deal Federal Art Center, Gallup is home to ~90 New Deal artworks, from paintings to tinwork light fixtures. Currently housed in four separate locations, this collection is disjointed and mostly inaccessible. It is largely forgotten/overlooked, and consequently underutilized as a humanities resource. The proposed project would digitally unify the collection, making it publicly accessible and able to be interpreted. Bringing together art historians, historians and cultural studies experts alongside web developers, designers and digital archivists, this project would also involve local artists, creatives and stakeholders in planning a creative, dynamic, community-based engaging virtual art exhibit, featuring both scholarly and creative content. The website will also function as a digital archive helping to preserve and protect the at-risk collection.

Production of an interactive, virtual museum exploring the New Deal art and artists of Gallup, New Mexico.

The Gallup New Deal Art (GNDA) Virtual Museum project endeavors to create a multi-faceted, interactive, and analytical website that restores Gallup’s legacy as a Federal Art Center by unifying an expansive and impressive collection of 156 New Deal artworks (currently housed in six separate locations) and by putting public art to public purpose. The Virtual Museum’s primary objectives are to make Gallup’s New Deal art collection widely available as a rich and engaging artistic, historical, and cultural resource and to leverage its potential for critical conversations and community building. Through original scholarship and creative interpretations, the GNDA Virtual Museum excavates the past, elevates and explores a diversity of perspectives, and encourages the exchange of ideas.

Prototyping of a new interactive website on the New Deal art collection of Gallup, New Mexico.

gallupARTS seeks $100K to prototype the Gallup New Deal Art (GNDA) website, which showcases Gallup’s expansive and impressive collection of New Deal Art. The GNDA website was planned through a 2018 NEH Digital Projects for the Public Discovery grant. Now, gallupARTS proposes to take the next step in developing the website by building a model to evaluate its content and design. The GNDA website takes a combined scholarly and creative approach to interpreting Gallup’s New Deal art in a way that both recognizes its historical significance and engages with it from a contemporary perspective, making it relevant to a diverse audience. It features a search-able database of 144 artworks and 29 artists, 4 special exhibits taking an art historical approach to the major aspects of the collection (e.g., western American art and Native art), and 7 non-traditional interpretations by creatives (e.g., artists and writers), adding dimension to the discussion.
