Harry Jackson Museum (Cody, WY 82414-8446)
Karen Anne Briggs (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Harry Jackson Museum Engagement of Conservation Staff for Critical Conservation of Artworks

The Harry Jackson Museum (HJI) requests NEH Cares funding to support the employment of conservation staff to address priority preservation housing needs for a sub-set of the Harry Jackson Collection. The HJI was addressing critical conservation recommendations of a 2019 CAP Assessment when Covid19-related workplace closures caused the project’s abrupt halt. NEH Cares would provide immediate employment to museum staff, qualified contracted conservation personnel and work for a local business. This project will allow HJI to retain staff and increase HJI’s public visibility and standing, thus indirectly helping to garner future financial support. This project represents an important investment in future access to the its collection making it possible for museum professionals and the public to locate objects for exhibit and research purposes. This project advances the Institute’s Strategic Plan, ties directly to the Institute’s mission, and advances the Humanities.
