A Preservation Assessment of Artifacts and Works of Art on Paper in the Collections of the Department of Art

A preservation assessment of the storage facilities for the artifacts and works of art on paper in the university's art center and the purchase of preservation supplies and storage furniture for rehousing the collections.

The Department of Art at Colorado State University will contract a paper conservator and object conservator to develop detailed plans for rehousing the department's permanent collection, with attention to collection focus areas of Japanese prints, 20th-century works on paper, and African art and artifacts. The consultants will address two phases: 1) short-term interim improvements for the existing temporary storage spaces at the Visual Arts Building; 2) floor plan and equipment plan for the permanent collection storage areas at the new University Center for the Arts, a multi-media complex located in a renovated historic building, due to open to the public in 2008-2009. The permanent humanities collections consist of approximately 3,000 objects used in exhibitions, art history classes, school outreach, traveling exhibitions, and for hands-on connoisseurship and research. The grant will assist the Department in fulfilling its mission to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret art work.
