The Baby and the Bath Water: Reassessing Analog Slides
The curator of Sonoma State University's Art and Art History Department Image Collection describes her strategy for preserving unique and original images that document local history while preparing for the eventual disposition of 150,000 35mm slides acquired over 45 years in support the department's curriculum. She is ferreting out the collection's original photography of exhibitions and installations and work by faculty and other local artists that demonstrate the vibrant culture history of Northern California and seeking permission from the artists to display images of their work.
