The Gallup New Deal Art Website: Exploring Past & Present Perspectives in a Multi-dimensional Virtual Art Showcase

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.
