Sustainable Plan for Accessible Storage: Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

A grant to establish a long-term storage plan to increase accessibility and improve preventive care of the museum’s collection of over 90,000 American decorative and fine arts objects displayed in 175 room settings.

Winterthur requests a $50,000 planning grant to create a long-term plan to solve its current storage challenges. The plan and eventual storage solution must improve preventive care; be environmentally, financially, and socially sustainable; and increase accessibility to better serve guests, students, scholars, and staff for decades to come. The planning grant activity period marks a critical phase in the ten-year plan to implement accessible storage solutions for Winterthur’s preeminent collections of American decorative and fine arts objects, library materials, garden objects, and estate artifacts. Staff will work with a team of interdisciplinary consultants, students, and early-to-mid career professionals to produce two or three comprehensive storage solutions. Each solution will be evaluated to select the best plan to solve storage issues. Winterthur will produce research and lead conferences on developing accessible storage solutions that will be useful for smaller institutions.
