Social Media Spotlight: Crowdsourcing Archives with Richard McCoy

document Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge
Summary An interview with Richard McCoy, Associate Conservator of Objects & Variable Art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, about his use of crowdsourcing and public access tools to get the public involved in documenting public art.
Description Richard McCoy truly believes that it is important to involve the public in his project. Accordingly, he said, "Many public artworks on display around the world are overlooked, their context and meaning forgotten on daily basis. So to have the public involved is an important aspect of this project. The more people that are involved in caring about and for public art and helping to document it, the better".
