The Peter Wexler Digital Museum at Furman is a collaborative project between Furman University Libraries Digital Collections Center and New York City artist, theatre designer, and producer Peter Wexler. The Digital Museum showcases the life's work of Peter Wexler and contains digital images of three-dimensional set models, stage designs, sculpture, costume sketches, paint elevations, and more, all organized chronologically in "digital portfolios" to reflect the artist's creative process.

Rick Jones, manager of the library’s Digital Collections Center led a team of students in photographing, scanning and editing more than 6,000 pieces of Wexler’s art spanning more than 50 years.
