Almost 3 years ago we started a project with the Asian American Art Centre (AAAC) in Chinatown to develop a digital archive. Impacted by 9/11, the AAAC received funding from the LMDC to help preserve and document the history of Asian American art in the US over the past 60 years. More than 1,500 files from over 170 artists form the basis of the digital archive. Together with AAAC’s team and professional archivists, we developed and implemented the archiving and cataloging software. Once the back-end was in place, archivists added content such as photos, scanned images, letters, and press articles. Finally SUPERMETRIC designed and implemented the front end of artasiamerica.org to make the largest digital archive of Asian American art accessible for everyone to learn and enjoy.
