Rehousing of 134 Asian Paintings

The purchase of supplies for the rehousing of a collection of 134 rolled Asian painted scrolls and to facilitate the reorganization and storage of the paintings in custom archival boxes. This work would improve preservation of the historic scrolls, including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean paintings on multiple media (paper, silk, and other fabrics), and promote access to this significant collection of 19th-century works for extensive use within the university community, for undergraduate research projects, museum exhibitions, as well as for related public programs that reach a broad audience.

The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA) at the University of Oregon respectfully requests NEH funding to support a project to improve storage conditions for our rolled Asian Paintings Collection. Specifically, the grant will fund the cost of supplies for the rehousing of these scrolls. The project will be supervised by the museum’s collections manager, Christopher White, who is a professional conservator with experience treating paper and wood. In addition to Mr. White, other key staff to the project will include Anne Rose Kitagawa, the museum’s chief curator and curator of Asian art, and Jonathan Smith, the museum’s on-staff professional photographer. The goals of the proposed project are to (1) significantly improve storage conditions for this heavily used section of the collections and (2) also improve public digital access to these paintings, some of which have never been publicly available.
