Transforming Image

Subseries contains records directly related to the planning, development and execution of the Transforming Image exhibit at MOA. Planning for the exhibit began in 1983 when grants were obtained to begin research on Northwest Coast paintings. The exhibit itself occurred in 1993. The exhibit was the end result of research and development of a technique to view severely faded Northwest Coast First Nations paintings and painted objects through the use of infrared technology. Records include correspondence and information requests, public relations files, grant application information, budgeting information, papers, conferences and publications about the Transforming Image, files related to the publishing of the Transforming Image book and school interest in the exhibit.

Due to its large volume, The Transforming Image subseries has been broken down further into sub- subseries: Administration records; Research files; Book related; and Institutional photographs.
