Shirley Veenema brings the perspective of an art teacher (elementary and high school), a researcher at Project Zero from 1987-2007, and a visual artist. Collaborative media work includes five videos for the show Dangerous Curves: Art of the Guitar at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and a series of interactive web-based documentaries funded by the Cultural Landscape Foundation. Currently her work as an artist is in mixed media and artists’ books. Her 5-part handmade book (Witches, Magic & Early New England), produced as part of the Digital Public Library of America Community Representative program, tells a story culminating in the Salem Massachusetts witch trials. The book, produced to showcase what makers can do with the DPLA online collections, has also interested educators looking for alternative ways of assessing student understanding.
