During my undergraduate career, I had the honor of serving as the first Registrar of the Permanent Collection for Hope College. Alongside the gallery Curator, I spearheaded the initiative to digitize the permanent art collection by personally gathering measurements and background on over 600 art objects and patrons. Each was photographed and entered all of it into Gallery System’s EmbARK collections management software to create linked online records available for college and community use.
The position culminated in an exhibition of the permanent collection in the campus art gallery entitled, “From One Generation to Another,” which I curated, and designed. I also served as a guest speaker and on the installation team.
