Take a peek behind the scenes at the Denver Art Museum where far more art than is ever curated lives in their archives. In our modern digital world their collection includes far more than paint-and-canvas works.

Keeping modern art, especially digital work, is much more difficult to maintain over a long period of time. That’s why the museum applied and won a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal agency, to help them manage the growing number of pixel-based pieces.
