Craig Ray Hadley (Project Director: April 2015 to present)

Purchase of Delta Design Museum Storage Cabinet for Contemporary Works of Art

Purchase of a storage cabinet and rehousing supplies for 139 art objects in the collection of the Peeler Gallery on the campus of DePauw University. The university maintains a 3,500 object teaching collection with particular strengths in Japanese and Tibetan artworks, as well as paintings, decorative objects, and fine art photography associated with the history of DePauw and the state of Indiana. The project would focus on rehousing a diverse collection of contemporary artists’ books, photographs, drawings, ceramics, and three-dimensional works used by students and faculty as teaching tools in a variety of classes.

The Galleries at Peeler on the campus of DePauw University respectfully requests $3,549 to purchase a Model DDLX-G museum storage cabinet from Delta Design Ltd, along with ethafoam and blueboard to support rehousing efforts. This new cabinet will house 139 of the smallest and most vulnerable contemporary art objects, ranging from a Kara Walker pop-up book to a Vik Muniz porcelain plate and artist DVDs. The objects directly support a variety of teaching and research needs at DePauw University, including: undergraduate special projects, classroom use by faculty and staff, and student/gallery curated exhibitions. Per a recent 2014 AAM MAP review, the external reviewer recommended that all non-archival storage furniture, including the current storage cabinet for these objects, be replaced with permanent/durable archival furniture. The new Delta Design unit will also include storage space for objects pending use by student researchers and faculty members.
