Rapid Capture Pilot Project



Smithsonian Secretary G. Wayne Clough dropped by the Freer|Sackler this week to check out the progress of the Rapid Capture Pilot Project.

The Freer|Sackler hosted the Smithsonian Digitization Program Office’s fourth Rapid Capture Pilot Project, an effort to quickly and efficiently digitize collection items, in May 2014. The team digitized a variety of Asian ceramics from the Freer Study Collection. This is the first time digital images have been made available from this collection, which was established in 1923.

As renovation work continues in the Freer Gallery, the Sackler Gallery also will close on July 10, 2017. This museum-wide closure will allow us to completely reinstall our exhibitions and revitalize features to improve your visit. Both spaces will reopen on October 14, 2017, when we will welcome the public back to the Freer|Sackler: two galleries, one destination. For your safety, all visitors will have their bags checked. See the complete list of restricted items and bag sizes.
