Project MUSE: Museum Sabbatical Experience for Faculty Teaching at the Arts-Science Interface

Research stipends for four college and university professors who teach classes on the “Chemistry of Art,” to spend summer leave or sabbatical time in the conservation lab at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, working on projects connected to objects in the collection.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) proposes a grant from the NEH to continue its established program Project MUSE. Project Muse allows college and university professors who teach courses at the interface of art and science to participate in important research and technical studies of artwork in a modern conservation science laboratory at a major museum during their sabbatical or summer leaves from teaching. The purpose of the experience is to conduct cutting-edge research at the IMA that benefits the Museum's research and conservation efforts and also enters into science curricula around the country leading to increased interest in the arts and sciences among academic faculty and undergraduate students. Intended results include new conservation science curriculum developed for university classes, presentations and publications on new research for the field of conservation science, and inspiring a new generation of scholars interested in entering the field of conservation science.
