The Prendergast Archive and Study Center’s Pinterest account features images of both fine art and archival materials that were digitized as part of the IMLS digitization grant. Pinterest is a great social media platform for sharing images and categorizing them onto different boards. Pinterest users can follow the boards that share their tastes and repin their favorite images to their own board.
So far The Prendergast Archive and Study Center has 14 Pinterest boards including Prendergast Tools, Prendergast Diaries, Letters, and Cards, Prendergast Personal Photos, Prendergast Belongings, Traveling with the Prendergasts (which features an interactive map) as well as several boards featuring Maurice and Charles’ fine art.
With over 70 million users worldwide, Pinterest is a good way to reach new audiences. Check out the WCMA Prendergast page and like the images you like best and repin your favorites.
Meanwhile the digitization process continues. The personal photos belonging to Eugénie Prendergast and reference photos used by Maurice and Charles will be digitized by Pivot Media soon. Stay tuned as we unveil more images and new project activities!
