Why does this website deserve to win?:
In Honor of the People is a first step toward a virtual reunification of American Indian-made objects held at multiple institutions.
Episcopalian missionary Henry Whipple collected hundreds of cultural objects. Phase I of this project brings together nearly 500 items from the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Minnesota Historical Society.
We look forward to future submissions from individuals, libraries, and museums around the world.
How It Was Done (optional):
Lots of jQuery powers the interface, from overlay transitions to a circular navigation. The site uses a responsive design and also includes an ongoing data import connecting to the data sources from the two museums involved in the first phase of this site.
