Digital posters and interative maps are one of the latest techniques the MUA is using to present underwater archaeological research to the public. They offer a unique way to explore projects.

Archaeologists have long recognized the value of artistic representations of maritime scenes as a source of information. In a reversal of sorts there is growing trend of the involvment of artists in archaeological work along with an appreciation for the artistry of archaeological drawings. The following links highlight these themes as they appear throughout the MUA.


Art From Archaeology The MUA invited two professional artists, Elinor Mossip and Wendy Savage, to peruse our pages to see if any of the images spoke to them as artists and if so to select a few and share them with our audience. Their choices and thoughtful comments on six images make up this first ever MUA Art from Archaeology exhibit.


Raising the Fleet: An Art / Science Initiative The exhibit will convey the results of a recent art/science collaboration in which the exhibit team used their artistic talents and scientific expertise to develop new and exciting methods of exploring the underwater frontiers of Lake George, New York.


Japanese Wooden Boats in Woodblock Prints A Research Project Journal Underwater archaeologist Michelle Damian examined woodblock prints by various Japanese artists that depicted boats and maritime scenes to study construction techniques and cultural uses. She combined this with visits to libraries and museums in Japan to examine their models and archives for more information on vernacular ship construction. Her project journal narrates her innovative combination of art and material culture that was the basis for her Master's degree.


Digital Inking Underwater archaeologists Stephanie Gandulla and Nicole Wittig demonstrate two techniques for creating line art from photographs.


Google Art Gallery Google has partnered with nearly 200 art museums to scan and present some of the world's greatest art. The MUA has taken advantage of Google's collection to create a subcollection of maritime related art.
