San Antonio Museum of Art Collection Digitization Project

A three-year project to capture digital images of approximately 1,850 artworks representing the museum’s diverse international collections, develop digital content, and upgrade infrastructure associated with its collection management system. Newly digitized materials would be freely available through a redesigned website.

The San Antonio Museum of Art provides transformative experiences for its annual 130,000 visitors and 20,000 students through its collection, special exhibitions, and 1,175 programs. Since opening in March 1981, the Museum’s permanent collection has grown to over 30,000 works of art spanning 5,000 years of history, from Egyptian antiquities to contemporary Australian Aboriginal art. Currently, the Museum’s collection is almost exclusively beneficial to visitors to the physical campus, mostly residents of Central and South Texas and travelers to San Antonio. To continue to fulfill its mission and reach the broadest audience possible, the Museum would like to make its collection available in an online searchable database. A grant of $350,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities would allow the Museum to take the necessary steps to digitize its collection and make it globally accessible.
