The University of Houston and Museum of Fine Arts Houston are collaborating to expand a digital archive of Latin American art and art criticism

The collaboration is thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The grant will allow graduate students to work with the museum’s curatorial staff to translate, annotate, organize and expand the world-renowned digital archive.

Students will work with the museum for two years, gaining valuable real world experience. Koontz sees the collaboration as just the beginning of the partnership between UH and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
