In this talk, we'll explore the journey of syncing external data for the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s collection data and imagery with Drupal to power a massive digital collection and explorer. Our focus will be on the custom strategies we've implemented to integrate their collections data and their DAMs with the museum's Drupal platform, enhancing the digital experience for art enthusiasts.

We'll dive into the specific challenges we faced, the solutions we devised, and the lessons learned along the way. This includes a look at our unique approaches to handling complex data sets, ensuring accuracy and timeliness in representing the museum's vast collection online.

Additionally, we'll share our vision and hopes for future projects – the next steps and emerging strategies we are excited to experiment with. Whether you're a Drupal developer, a data integration enthusiast, or just curious about the intersection of art and technology, this session will provide valuable insights into the practicalities and innovations in Drupal data synchronization.

Join us to discover how the Amon Carter Museum of American Art bridges the gap between its physical collection and digital representation, pioneering new ways to bring American art to a global audience.
