Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #23

May 20, 2011

May20.jpgIn looking forward to Year Two of the project, we have begun research on historic house objects. It has been a pleasure working with our contract Decorative Arts curator, Ellen Denker, for the past week. Elizabeth and I have been removing objects from around the house and bringing them down to a storage room on the staff level for Ellen to look at and take notes. In the coming weeks she will be creating and submitting curatorial write-ups that we will enter into the database during Year Two. 

This is the first of multiple sessions that involves researching our historic house collection. In just this one week we have learned so many interesting things about our objects.  (More details to come in a future post.) We are already looking forward to our next session!
