Wisconsin Object: A Quick Introduction

This blog documents my search for Wisconsin’s objects–the furniture, ceramics, textiles, and metalwork made by Wisconsin artisans and manufacturers and used by Wisconsin people. I work with local historical societies and museums around the state to find these important objects and document them for an online catalog, the Wisconsin Decorative Arts Database.

Each object I add to the database in digital form has a physical home in a larger collection–whether it’s a small town historical society run by volunteers, or a big city public museum with a professional staff, each person and each place I encounter is also part of the story of this search.

To find out more about me, the project, and the organizations that make it possible, check out the About page.
