As the culminating event for the National Digital Stewardship Residency for Art Information and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) will host The Art of Digital Stewardship: Content, Context, and Structure. During this symposium, NDSR Art residents from MICA’s Decker Library, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago and Small Data Industries will present possible solutions for the acquisition, preservation, and access of digital art and art information, from preserving born-digital documentation of the museum experience to working with at-risk artists’ archives.

In addition, this one-day symposium will bring together digital archivists, digital curators, librarians, content creators, and artists to discuss digital art stewardship and focus on questions such as:

How are we conceptualizing the artistic process as information/ or as a record? How can we support artists’ engagement with the archival record? And, conversely, how can we support artists’ archival impulses?

The Art of Digital Stewardship: Content, Context, and Structure is sponsored by the Maryland Institute College of Art and the National Digital Stewardship Residency for Art Information.
