New Eyes on Alice Austen: Redesigning the Museum's Permanent Installation

Implementation of a new onsite interpretation and expanded website content for Clear Comfort, the home of early American photographer Alice Austen (1866–1952).

The Alice Austen House (AAH), the only museum dedicated to a woman photographer in the United States, requests $400,000 for a Historic Places implementation grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for the project New Eyes on Alice Austen: Redesigning the Museum’s Permanent Installation to better contextualize, expand, and update the presentation of the core story of early American photographer, Alice Austen (1866-1952). Guided by a team of five prominent scholars, AAH will engage a professional exhibition designer to incorporate current scholarship into re-envisioning the permanent installation at the historic house museum to more comprehensively demonstrate Austen’s contributions to photographic, immigration, women’s and LGBTQ history. The new permanent installation would be unveiled to the public in March 2019 during Women’s History Month.
