Many of you will be familiar with what goes on in the two upper floors of the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, where the curatorial staff puts on a variety of exhibitions culled from the museum’s collection and loans from other institutions. Less well known is what goes on in the basement, where the collections staff catalogues and cares for the museum’s extensive collection. With the launch this month of a new online database that entire collection will now be availabe to researchers and art lovers around the world. In this month’s video essay, Carol Fulton goes down to the basement to find out “What Lies Beneath the UMFA.”
