Public Art Data Collection and Analysis

The Venice Project Center started collected data on Venetian public art all the way back in 1990. As the first organization to collect data on these pieces, they paved the way for the methodology and data collection techniques necessary to determine aspects such as, location, current appearance, and cost needed to repair. In 1995, these methods were finalized as the VPC won another IQP award for the team’s algorithm for cost of restoration. Additionally, their prioritization system they developed was cited in “Technology Review.” Since then, the center has been collecting data and public art all around Venice and working with PreserVenice to keep these pieces in good condition for years to come.
