Environmental Management Improvements Plan for the Everson Museum of Art

A planning grant to assess and update the environmental monitoring program for collections of American art held in a historic I.M. Pei building (1968) and to develop an Environmental Management Improvements Plan for the preservation of the museum’s collections.

In conjunction with a planned exhibition and international symposium in 2018 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic 1968 building that is the Everson Museum of Art, the Museum respectfully requests a $50,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in support of a planning project to (i) update the Museum’s current environmental monitoring program, including monitoring of selected intra-wall conditions to determine if interior humidification in winter might be contributing to deterioration of the concrete exterior, and (ii) create a comprehensive long-term preservation strategy based on the collected data. The Environmental Management Improvements Plan (the Plan) will incorporate sustainable preventive conservation strategies for the preservation of the Museum’s collections, for reducing energy costs, and for avoiding damage to the unique and architecturally-significant concrete exterior walls of Pei’s landmark structure.
