Amarillo Museum of Art

Digitization of Price Collection of Asian Art

The Amarillo Museum of Art completed digitization photography for AMoA’s Price Collection of Asian Art catalogue. MIDEA funding supported high-resolution digital documentation of all 300-plus works and transfer to DVD’s. The works are a significant component of AMoA’s permanent holdings and include Edo period Japanese woodblock prints, important Hindu and Buddhist sculptures from India, Cambodia, Nepal and Indonesia;  and textiles representing Turkey, Afghanistan, Iran, Spain, and Tibet. The resultant images were used for producing two publications: an online collection catalogue and an 80-page print publication accompanied by the DVD. The Museum web page was also expanded to include a presentation of featured works.
