VCESDA Virtual Annual Meeting: Magnificence in Steel (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: VCESDA Virtual Annual Meeting: Magnificence in Steel
Abstract: Dr. Chassica Kirchhoff has given two virtual lectures inspired by what she has learned about our armor collection during this NEH SCHC project. The first was a “Lunch and Learn” on Thursday, June 11, 2020 given for Associate level members and above, which focused on armor represented in the DIA collection including sculptures, paintings, prints and armor. The second one, Magnificence in Steel, was on Saturday, September 26 for the Visiting Committee for European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, one of the DIA supporting Auxiliaries. Its focused was the specific discoveries Dr. Kirchhoff made while examining and studying the armor from the estate of William Randolph Hearst. The NEH SCHC grant was acknowledged during the lecture, as these examinations would not have taken place without this grant. Dr. Kirchhoff also compiled a document that provides an overview of specialized cataloging needs for arms and armors. The new standards marry our DIA cataloging and data entry protocols with best practices developed by important arms and armor repositories like The MET and the UK Royal Armouries (see attached).
