I have not yet brought ArchivesSpace online yet, but within Archon, for the university permanent art collection, we uploaded a digital photograph of each art item, described it, and also uploaded a pdf of the accession record.  Here's an example:


I have looked into how the data exported into ArchivesSpace, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.  Our university's "The Art Gallery" wanted to at lease have a basic online record of each piece and its location (at the time of cataloging--whether in storage or placed somewhere on campus).
