Corinne Midgett (Project Director: January 2019 to present)
Analysis and Optimization of the High Point Museum's Preservation Environment

A Planning grant to monitor and analyze the preservation environment in the High Point Museum’s storage and exhibition spaces.  The museum’s collections include 20,000 artifacts, 8,000 archival records, and 15,000 print photographs that document the furniture, transportation, and textile industries of High Point, North Carolina, located in the state’s Piedmont Triad region.

Through this grant, a multi-disciplinary team, including two consultants from the Image Permanence Institute, will monitor and analyze the preservation environment in the High Point Museum’s storage and exhibition spaces. The museum’s environmental systems are aging, complicating maintenance and causing partial failures. After collecting and evaluating environmental data for one year, the project team will be able to optimize the performance of the current systems for preservation and energy savings.
