Announcing a new Virtual Exhibit
We are pleased to announce a new virtual exhibit. The Diniacopoulos Collection Virtual Exhibit was created by Queen’s University students, Kristen Jones and Marissa Monette, under the supervision of Dr. George Bevan, in collaboration with the Department of Classics, the Department of Art History and Art Conservation and Queen’s University Library. This exhibit is an interactive online tour of archaeological artifacts from the Diniacopoulos Collection on display in the Queen’s University’s Classics Department, that have also undergone conservation treatment by the Art History and Art Conservation Department. The exhibit is intended to be as intuitive to navigate as walking through an exhibit, and presents virtual reality video and 3D models of the artifacts.
This collaboration was explored as part of a pilot project at the library to investigate and document policies, procedures, metadata, and technology requirements for partnering with departments across Queen’s on Digital Humanities and experiential learning projects.
Please view the exhibit to learn more about the history and artifacts of the Diniacopoulos collection.
