Gallery Director Presented at Teaching, Learning Conference
Catherine Tedford, director of the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery, gave an illustrated presentation at the Council of Independent Colleges’ Consortium on Digital Resources for Teaching and Learning conference on Sept. 8 in Washington, D.C.
Her talk, titled "Working Well with Others: Collaborations Based on the “Street Art Graphics” Digital Archive," was part of a panel Collaboration with Museums, Galleries, and Historical Societies.
This year is the third of a four-year grant from the CIC to build a digital archive of street art stickers in a platform known as Shared Shelf Commons.
From CIC's website: “With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CIC is offering member institutions the opportunity to be part of a Consortium on Digital Resources for Teaching and Research to improve teaching and learning, enhance faculty and student/faculty research, and streamline administrative capabilities through a uniform and cost-effective system. Each institution in the Consortium has identified at least one collection that could be made more valuable and used more frequently if it were stored and shared via a networked solution. The members of the Consortium have convened once each year for three years to share ideas, collections, research projects, and teaching strategies."
St. Lawrence University was one of 42 institutions across the country to be selected to participate in the Consortium.
