On Thursday, January 29, yet another group of Wentworth students visited the Curley house at 350 The Jamaicaway.
Students enrolled in the Spring 2015 iteration of Digital Approaches to Boston Culture will be picking up where the Fall 2014 group left off: editing, revising, and expanding upon unique curatorial concepts for each room in the house and migrating that content from our private workspace to a soon-to-be public website.

Annotation Studio is one of the tools currently being used as part of the Curley virtual house museum project.
