Andrew Harrington (Project Director: December 2017 to August 2019)
State Historical Museum of Iowa Exhibit Gallery Lighting Project

A planning project to develop design and construction documents for a new lighting system to facilitate the preservation of objects pertaining to Iowa history and culture on display in the museum’s main exhibition gallery.

The State Historical Society of Iowa seeks a National Endowment for the Humanities Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections Planning Grant of $50,000 in order to assemble an experienced interdisciplinary project team to develop a plan for new energy-efficient lighting for the 45,000 square feet of museum gallery space in the State Historical Museum of Iowa. The goal will be to develop a sustainable solution that balances the need for a more effective lighting design with cost and energy savings considerations along with preservation of artifacts and documents on exhibit. The final deliverables will include schematic design documents, design development documents and construction documents to be used for the implementation phase of the project.
