The Digital Humanities field is rapidly introducing new and innovative ways in which we can analyze and explore large bodies of humanities material in order to make new discoveries and connections. This project serves as an introduction on how to use simple Digital Humanities tools to examine a dataset. In this project, data collected about the body of artwork exhibited in the 1913 Armory Show like medium, subject, or year of creation is analyzed using three different free-to-use tools. The data is then presented in a visual format that brings new questions and connections to light. The limitations and frustrations that can arise when taking on a Digital Humanities project are also addressed. This paper is intended to be read as a supplement to the provided project website. More information about the project in addition to the visual content, sources, and data mentioned in this paper can be found on the project website at https://nicoleorchosky.wixsite.com/artisdataisart
