Shannon Egan (Project Director: January 2020 to present)
Sustainable Preservation for Innovative Teaching and Learning

A planning project to assess and develop sustainable preventive conservation and storage strategies to protect a collection of 2,700 fine arts objects. The assessment would include an evaluation of the 1890’s-era, 6,540 square foot McPherson House to determine how it could be adapted to satisfy needs for collection storage, educational programming, and improved access for Gettysburg College students, faculty, and the general public, while also achieving energy efficiency.

Gettysburg College seeks a planning grant of $50,000 to assess and develop sustainable preventive conservation and storage strategies to protect its Fine Arts Collection. As an undergraduate college of liberal arts and sciences the Fine Arts Collection is central to teaching and learning in the humanities.
