McCune Bruhn part of interdisciplinary team working on enhancing online viewing of artwork

Heather McCune Bruhn, assistant teaching professor of art history, is co-principal investigator on a multidisciplinary team that received an $83,040 grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services for the project “High-Resolution Optical Imaging Platform for Digitization of Paintings in Color and 3D.”

The researchers will develop standards and protocols for a new scanning platform that will enhance the public’s online viewing experiences of artwork as well as conservation efforts by museums. It will include creating a portable art-specific optical coherent tomography (OCT) scanner, as well as a user-friendly software tool to display and analyze digital information collected by the scanner.
