Library of Congress Grants Funds for Projects to Remix Its Digital Collections

Through its Connecting Communities Digital Initiative, the Library of Congress is awarding more than $160,000 total to two artists and scholars, Maya Freelon and Allie Martin, who will create projects that remix and reuse the library’s digital collections as part of the library’s Of the People: Widening the Path initiative.

Freelon will produce an interactive art exhibit, Whippersnappers: Recapturing, Reviewing, and Reimagining the Lives of Enslaved Children in the United States, that will be based on archival photos from the Bess Lomax Hawes collection and others.

Martin’s project, called Sampling Black Life: Soundscapes and Critical Intention, will make original soundscape compositions—short sonic vignettes that layer sounds from the library’s digital collections with field recordings and composed music.

For more information, read the press release.
