Collaborative Capture: Leveraging Minimal Studio Space for Maximum Output
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2019.1.0.6  Published OnlineMay 2019

In early 2018, the Menil Collection received financial support via a generous grant from the Houston Endowment to spearhead a new digitization initiative. Through tactical crossdepartmental collaboration, the Menil has been able to strengthen institution-wide support for imaging. This initiative has allowed us to hire and train staff members, equip an industry-standard photography studio, and develop institutionwide workflows that support the long-term values in our commitment to taking extraordinary care for works of art and the central role of research and scholarship in the collection. Managed by Digital Asset Manager Margaret McKee and technically managed by Conservation Imaging Specialist Adam Neese, this project has resulted in over 1,500 objects being digitized to date with additional images of every object being captured for condition documentation and scholarly research. This paper outlines workflows established for collaborative capture at the Menil and discusses case studies in which the workflows have been utilized.
