The Venetian Art and Architecture website, an ongoing project by Professor Stephanie Leone and the students of ARTH3344, is a course resource featuring digital exhibits curated by students. The project was built using Omeka, an open source platform that supports digital exhibits and curation. The site was originally developed in collaboration with members of the Digital Scholarship Group, Visual Resources Curator, and an undergraduate research assistant. The collections showcase the visual culture of Venice, utilizing exhibits that correspond with topics of study in the course, including architecture, sculpture, artists and visual themes that are prevalent in Venetian art history. The site serves as an accessible guide to course content and is an opportunity for students to collaborate on a shared intellectual project.
