Amon Carter Museum of Western Art (Fort Worth, TX 76113-2365)
John B. Rohrbach (Project Director: December 2016 to August 2019)
Furnishing Sustainable Photography Storage

Improved storage for the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s photography collection, to include the expansion by 50 percent of the existing photography vault; the upgrading of HVAC systems controlling the vault climates; and the reorganization of existing storage into a more efficient layout, supplemented by the purchase and installation of new storage furniture as needed to allow for projected collection growth. 

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art (ACMAA) is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and displaying the finest examples of American art, and to serving an educational role through exhibitions, publications, and programs devoted to the study of American art. Sustainable preservation of its collections is both a mission-critical activity and a priority of the institution’s strategic plan. With this project the museum intends to expand its existing photography storage vaults, replace and update the vaults’ mechanical components, and bring increased efficiency to the storage layout.
