Provenance, or art’s history of ownership, is a growing area of discussion for museums across the world. As the Philadelphia Museum of Art so eloquently describes, “the provenance of an individual work of art sheds light on its historical, social, and economic context as well as its critical fortunes through time.”
This past weekend, members of the Cuseum team headed down to the Philadelphia Museum of Art for its first ever Power of Art hackathon. We wanted to show our support for the museum’s initiative towards creative innovation and also to test out some new concepts we’ve been exploring and brewing up in our laboratory. As you may know by now, we’re a bunch of museum geeks, so we were beyond excited to participate.
