About

 

The digital exhibition The March is the result of a collaborative project led by David A. Frank (Professor of Rhetoric and Mellon Faculty Fellow), the University of Oregon Libraries, and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, with individual contributions by members of both institutions (see below). This exhibition received inspiration and support from The James Blue Project, a research interest group at the University of Oregon devoted to creating a “living archive” from materials relating to the James Blue papers in UO Libraries’ Special Collections and University Archives.

Although this is a collaborative project, the intellectual content is primarily David Frank’s, and it does not necessarily represent the views of the University of Oregon, the University of Oregon Libraries, or the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.

The project was supported in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation through the grant-funded initiative “Leveraging GLAM Assets in Research, Teaching, and Learning: Mellon Faculty Fellowships to Advance Library-Museum Collaboration.” Adriene Lim, Dean of Libraries and Philip K. Knight Chair, University of Oregon Libraries, and Jill Hartz, Executive Director of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, are co-PIs for the grant. The initiative’s purpose is to foster collaboration between UO Libraries and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art through a program of small grants for faculty research projects that draw on the collections and/or expertise of both institutions. Jenny Kreiger, Mellon Postdoctoral Scholar in Library-Museum Collaboration, manages this initiative.
