City of Greeley Museums (Greeley, CO 80631)
Christopher Dill (Project Director: 05/18/2006 to present)

Rehouse the City of Greeley Museum's Weld County Image Collection and Training for Staff

The attendance of a curator at a workshop on the preservation and care of image collections and the purchase of supplies to rehouse 4,698 photographs in a museum collection centered on the history of Weld County, Colorado.

This proposal requests funds to send the museum's curator of collections to a workshop to improve her knowledge about the preventive care of historic photographs, including the history of photography, agents of deterioration, stabilization, and guidelines for storage, exhibition, and use. This training would then assist the museum's staff in completing the rehousing of the 4,698 photographs in the Weld County photograph collection, which are currently stored using inappropriate materials. Highlights of the collection include items possessed only by the City of Greeley Museum, such as those of a nearby (now defunct) African-American colony, schools, POW Camp 202, businesses, churches and early views of the community. The collection is used by genealogists, journalists, scholars, teachers, photographers, architects, and municipal and county employees in exhibitions, research, publications, programming, and education.
