New Zealand: Digital Portal Allows Worldwide Access to Sarjeant Gallery (Whanganui)

From The New Zealand Herald:

While the Sarjeant Gallery resides in its temporary home at Sarjeant on the Quay, public access to the collection has actually never been better.

The Explore the Collection digital portal allows anyone with access to the internet to search the entire Sarjeant collection according to filters of their choice – for example, artist, subject, year, medium, nationality, colour and object type.
