Special Projects

The Gallery Archives is actively engaged in projects and partnerships that draw upon our holdings to create exciting new tools for researchers. Learn about our current projects below.

Kress Collection History and Conservation Database Project

The Samuel H. Kress Collection History and Conservation Database Project has been established to create a comprehensive, searchable research tool with information on the history of works of art purchased by Samuel Kress and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Included is data on the works of art, their source, date of purchase, cost, attributions, physical movements, conservation, donation, and images.  The project is supported by generous grants from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.

Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection of Artist Postcards

In 2010, collectors Dorothy and Herbert Vogel donated to the Gallery Archives their collection of postcards and similar materials that artist friends had mailed to them through the years. The collection has been digitized, and select examples may be found, in association with artist biographies, at the Vogel 50x50 website.
