Megan Hancock, Denison Museum’s Curator of Education and Exhibitions is one of the proud recipients of the Association for Information Science and Technology’s ” Special Interest Group (SIG) Publication of the Year Award.” Her article, “Museums and 3D Printing: More Than a Workshop Novelty, Connecting to Collections and the Classroom,” appeared in Volume 42.1 in October 2015 as part of a special issue of the association’s Bulletin, edited by Moriana Garcia (University of Rochester) and Tod Colegrove (University of Nevada, Reno).

In her article, Ms. Hancock explores how 3D scanning and printing technology can help provide a more meaningful museum experiences for students and other visitors. As part of the project, she created a 3-D image of one of the Denison Museum’s objects, “Garuda, Enemy of Serpents,” a 20th century painted wood Indonesian sculpture. You can see the 3-D image and its real counterpart down at the Denison Museum.
