The Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, S.E.A.M Handbook

2020

As the Summer 2020 Education Intern, I was directed to organize the museum's series of videos into a handbook for S.E.A.M members. These students are responsible for educating the Ithaca community through tours and outreach programming. This handbook would give members a brief summary of major collections so they could go forth and engage with the public as informed individuals. 

 

Videos cover a wide range of collections from Nepalese Bodhisattvas and Chinese Tomb Figurines to the Dutch Cabinet of Curiosities.

The Works

Transcription

With access given by Annmarie Ventura, the Coordinator of Student Engagement, I transcribed over 20 videos covering special collections.

Research

Each transcript required verification of content, location of media reference numbers, and citations. 

Archives

Reference numbers were used to locate original image files for print.

 

In the process, archives and I realized many ref# had missing links or incorrect matches. This helped the department re-organize their content. 

Layout

Polished transcripts, images, and citations are being formatted within Adobe In-Design. 

The final document will be  available online for SEAM members.
