The Past Is Present May 6, 2009

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

A while back I told you that I was doing a story for the new weekly online edition of UAB Magazine that gave me a chance to look at the amazing treasures inside UAB Historical Collections. Well, it’s finally been published! Read it here.

The story was inspired by the exhibit of Leonardo da Vinci drawings at the Birmingham Museum of Art, and I interviewed a UAB art curator, art historian, archivist, and information manager about the art and science of preservation–whether it’s artwork, documents, artifacts, or health records.

Be sure to check out the slideshows that accompany the article–especially the one focusing on UAB Historical Collections. You’ll get to see some of the rare, ancient, and wonderful things I saw. (Love the medieval books full of wood block prints!)
