Documenting Modern Living: Digitizing the Miller House & Garden Collection

Digitization of architectural and landscape plans, photographs, correspondence, project files, and material samples for the National Historic Landmark Miller House and Garden in Columbus, Indiana. The collection of 23,000 items documents the collaboration of the Miller family and architect Eero Saarinen, landscape architect Dan Kiley, and interior designer Alexander Girard in the design, construction, and maintenance of this mid-century modern residence.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) seeks funding of $253,574.78 to digitize, catalog, and make accessible online primary source materials about the historic Miller House and Garden located in Columbus, Indiana. Designed by Eero Saarinen with interior design by Alexander Girard and landscape design by Daniel Kiley, the Miller House and Garden was the former home of J. Irwin and Xenia Miller. The property and many of its original furnishings were acquired by the IMA in 2009. The Miller House and Garden Collection, part of the IMA Archives, documents the design, construction, and maintenance of the property and includes materials in a variety of formats, such as: architectural drawings and blueprints, correspondence, textile samples, sketches, photographs, etc. The collection will be captured digitally and described with detailed metadata according to national standards. Once the materials have been digitized, the collection will be made available through the IMA Web site.
