Kimberly Bradshaw, registrar at The Metal Museum in Memphis, TN, has taken on the project of digitizing the slide archive that SNAG donated to The Metal Museum several years ago.

Thanks to a grant from the John & Robyn Horn Foundation and an ArtsFirst grant from the First Tennessee Bank Foundation, the SNAG slides are currently being cleaned, scanned, and color-corrected by a professional digitization vendor. This is The Metal Museum’s first major digitization initiative, and there are several organizations and individuals who have made this project possible, including American Craft Council (ACC) librarian Jessica Shaykett and their IT manager Eric Gjerde.

The newly restored digital images will be uploaded to the ACC Library Digital Collections on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to check back regularly for new content.
