The Arquin Slide Project

The National Endowment for the Humanities grant will support our project “Arquin Slide Collection Digitization Project: Preserving the Heritage of Latin America,” which will make approximately 15,000 slides available to the public. Photographed by artist and art educator, Florence Arquin in the 1940s and 50s, the slides provide a glimpse into cities across the world with a strong focus on Latin American architecture, art, nature, and life. In collaboration with my art historian colleague Emily Fenichel.
The site will be officially launched on April 2023.
