World War II and Monhegan: A multimedia online exhibition depicting the wartime experience of the residents of a remote island.

Four staff members and one web design consultant, as well as necessary materials and supplies, to develop the platform for a digital exhibit, “World War II: On Island and Abroad,” that will allow visitors to virtually engage with the museum’s archives through multimedia stories curated from the collection.

The Monhegan Museum of Art & History will create an online exhibition platform that will increase access to the museum’s holdings. The pilot exhibition: "World War II: On Island and Abroad" will use artworks, oral histories, moving images, photographs, letters, and ephemera to communicate the stories of a remote island community in wartime. Professional training received while constructing this exhibition will allow museum staff to build additional displays and expand outreach.
