Digital collection of The Art Museum

The project “Digital Collection of the Art Museum” is a unique occurence for The V. V. Vereshchagin Mykolaiv Art Museum first of all because the museum collection of graphic works of the XVII – the middle part the XX century are mostly inaccessible to researchers and visitors due to several factors. Although it has extraordinary historical and cultural value and demonstrates the heritage of Ukrainian and European culture, the collection is kept in the funds, and has not previously been exhibited to a wide audience.
As a result of the project, a digital collection of graphics was created with free 24/7 access. This enables to put works into scientific circulation, improves the base of scientific research, and provides unlimited reproduction of these copies.
Thus, as a result of the project 518 graphic works (engraving, drawing, watercolor, pastel, etching, lithography) were digitized, processed, researched, and cataloged.
A web resource has been created. It allows users to view and download electronic copies of graphics in a convenient format.

The logical conclusion of the project became the publication of an illustrated album-catalog, as another source of knowledge about the rare museum collection, and its distribution among the cultural institutions of the country.
During the project, five 3D models of graphic works in AR were created and a series of postcards were printed for the appropriate reading of images. An educational program of 4 online lectures was implemented. During these lectures experts from Ukraine and Europe shared knowledge and practical advice on the development of museums, attracting audiences, and promoting cultural leisure.
The project contributes to the preservation and promotion of the cultural heritage of Ukraine and permits to integrate the achievements of national culture into the world cultural space, as well as opens Mykolaiv as another spot on the cultural map of the country.
