National Park Service
The Digital Ark (TDAC) partners with the Harpers Ferry Center of the National Park Service to offer museum-quality archival reproduction services including high-resolution digitization, photo restoration, and archival prints in order to replace fragile originals on public display. The first project involved an exquisite collection of historic photographs of Oregon from the 1910s-1930s. Many of the large-format photographs were hand-colored in oil by Fred H. Kiser, who named this mass-production technique the “Artograph”. These fine-art giclée print reproductions are on display at the Oregon Caves National Monument. TDAC was awarded this project as GSA contract holder on schedule 67. A subsequent project comprised digital image capture, retouching, and archival reproductions of historic posters and prints for display at a former gambling casino at the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park in Alaska.
