Iraqi art lost and found

Dr. Nada Shabout, associate professor of art history at the University of North Texas, has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum and Library Service to create a publicly accessible archive of missing Iraqi art. Since 2003, Shabout has been gathering images of missing artwork from the Iraqi Museum of Modern Art in Baghdad, which was damaged following the invasion that year. The grant will allow for the construction of a database archiving her research, and accessible to other scholars.
