Fitz Henry Lane in Progress

The Fitz Henry Lane Online Catalogue Project Continues to Garner Grants

panopticon is very pleased to play a role in The Fitz Henry Lane Online Catalogue Raisonné Project under the direction of the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The Project is at the heart of a $5M Capital Campaign—Reaching Out, Strengthening Within.

The Museum has already reached 70% of its goal in contributions and pledges and hopes to launch the Lane website in early 2014.

Funding for the Lane Project is provided by the Cape Ann Museum, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art, the Danversbank Charitable Foundation, and the John H. and H. Naomi Tomfohrde Foundation.

“We have had nothing but positive experiences with the panOpticon team. They have been very easy to work with, prompt and responsible in follow-through on all levels. The training is straightforward and the software itself can answer most questions going forward. Most importantly, the team understands the field of art scholarship as only insiders can. The amount of time and effort we have saved in the start-up phase alone is incalculable and the ongoing efficiency of the data input and organization continues to allow us to focus our resources on the core research.”

— Sam Holdsworth, Project Director, Fitz Henry Lane Catalogue Project
