Museum of Art at the University of Puerto Rico at Cayey Receives Award to Catalog and Digitize Frade's Legacy Collection

The Dr. Pio López Martinez Museum of Art at the University of Puerto Rico at Cayey received a $138,102 award to catalog and digitize its permanent Frade Legacy collection, consisting of more than 4,000 prints, photographs, drawings, paintings, books, documents, printed matter, memorabilia, furniture, tools, and other objects from the estate of Ramón Frade (1875–1954), a prolific Puerto Rican artist. The project will give the Museum's audiences greater access to the collection, enabling further study, research, and dissemination, and will expand opportunities for the appreciation and recognition of Frade and his works, and their importance within the social, historical, cultural, and artistic heritage of Cayey, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean. This project is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and matching funds from the UPR. The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation's libraries and museums. The Institute's mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. The Institute works at the national level and in coordination with state and local organizations to sustain heritage, culture, and knowledge; enhance learning and innovation; and support professional development.
