Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit, MI 48202-4008)
Barbara Heller (Project Director: December 2017 to present)
Time-Based Media Climate-Controlled Storage Planning Grant

The DIA respectfully requests a $33,640 National Endowment for the Humanities Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections Planning Grant to conduct a feasibility assessment of two possible areas to create a climate-controlled Time-Based Media (TBM) storage room to store, preserve and protect the physical legacy collections such as artworks that include video, film, slide, audio, computer technologies in various electronic formats, and audio-visual collection from the museum’s Research Library and Archives Collection that have sound and video recordings in analog and digital formats. Through this planning grant, the museum will explore and recommend sustainable approaches for the long-term care of its TBM Collections through the allocation of specific climate controlled environments to store and house its key legacy TBM artworks and non-art/archival collections.
