A Showcase for Northwest Community College Arts

The Northwest Community College Library has teamed up with The Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art to shine a spotlight on student work. The library has catalogued all of the school art on campus and will be combining it with art photos in Arca.

Arca is a collaborative initiative that puts the development and implementation of a digital repository within reach for every institution, at a reasonable cost, and in a supported environment.

Melanie Wilke, Library Coordinator explains, “The library itself has about 25 student paintings and carvings and thought they should be showcased to a wider audience, and as it turns out the art school was looking for a way of cataloguing the student work, so the relationship happened quite easily.” The college will begin by sharing 50 pieces via Arca, with expectations that the collection will evolve.
