The Museum of Northern Arizona: Preservation Assistance for Three Significant Collections

Funding supports the purchase of museum storage furniture and rehousing supplies to rehouse three major collections: 829 Katsina dolls, 4,375 prehistoric ceramic vessels, and 200 linear feet of archives and 3,000 glass plate negatives and lantern slides that document the museum's collections. For each collection, the Museum will also purchase three high efficiency particulate (HEPA) filter vacuums for housekeeping.

This project seeks to complete the upgrade of storage conditions for the three the collections in the most critical and immediate need as well as purchase housekeeping equipment to assist with the implementation of a housekeeping policy to maintain the new Easton Collection Center. Upon accomplishing these objectives, this project will remedy imminent risk of deterioration to MNA's Katsina doll collection, Prehistoric ceramics collection and Archival Manuscript Collection, as well as provide housekeeping equipment that will benefit all priority one and two collections items stored within the new facilities. Support from NEH for these initiatives will allow MNA to provide the standard of care necessary for the preservation of these collections, the scope of which is unmatched on the Colorado Plateau. The project will run from January 2010 through to June 2011.
