Framing the Future: Collections, Care, and Storage Renovation at the Gibbes Museum of Art

An implementation project to improve storage conditions for the Gibbes Museum's collections, which focus on art of the American south. Storage furniture would be installed in a new collections suite that is being created as part of a major renovation and expansion of the museum.

The Gibbes Museum of Art requests a Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections Implementation Grant of $250,000 to relocate the fine art collection and purchase and install custom-designed, space and energy efficient storage equipment, return the collection and reinstall the collection in the new storage and study center, as part of a major building renovation entitled Framing the Future: A Campaign for Excellence at the Gibbes Museum of Art. The Gibbes is dedicated to generating scholarship, exhibitions and programs that promote a broad understanding of this region and its role in American and world history, and contemplate its future. The renovation and storage/study suite will go far to help make this knowledge accessible to diverse audiences, and add richness to the visitor experience.
