Box 118030 Gainesville, FL 32611-8030 Re: Library Enhancement Program in the Humanities Dear Bonnie Effros, The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art respectfully reque sts $4,450 from the Center for the Humanities and Public Sphere/Library Enhancement Grant in order to produce an online exhibition and permanent resource on the Asian collections of the museum. The successful completion of this dissemination project will directly translate into increased usage and benefit of diverse humanities disciplin es: cultural studies, political and social theory, museum studies, art history and criticism, technical art history, religion and philosophy, among others. A new 25,920-square-foot David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing speci fically devoted to the display and study of Asian art is undergoing completion and will open in March 2012. A much anticipated highlight of the inaugural exhibitions is the dedication of the North Gallery to the display of Korean art. In particular, a 17th century gilt wood bodhisattva will serve as a nexus for an online exhibition with commenta ry by art historians, conservators, and registrars. The bodhisattva has undergone many medical imaging tests in order to fully explore issues of attribution, provenance, and function of this religious sculpture. (please see attached publications) In addition to the physical exhibition and interactive materials in the gallery, UF Digital Collections and the Harn Museum would like to produce an online exhibition resource with additional available media and content, including professional photography of Buddhist sutra pages found in the interior cavity of the bodhisattva. The online exhibit will be freely available through the UF Digital Collections (UFDC; http://ufdc.ufl.edu ) and designed by Lourdes Santamara-Wheeler. All items featured in the exhibit, and any new related materials, will also individually be available in UFDC. With UFDC, remote and local resear chers have free, open access to the full content of the resource. An exhibition brochure would be produced which would serve as a link to the project in perpetuity. As the project progresses, additional pages could be added to the existi ng framework to highlight new research, acquisitions, and provenance research.
