Assessment and Planning for Storage of the Museum's World Collection

Hiring a conservation team to conduct an assessment of storage needs and develop a storage plan for a diverse collection of approximately 5,000 objects in the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art that includes metals, paintings, works on paper, and photography. The museum's "World Collection" spans some 4,000 years of history and contains objects from Egyptian and Classical cultures, African masks, Asian prints, and Australian aboriginal bark paintings.

Funds received from this grant would support an assessment of the storage needs, including storage equipment, space and climate requirements, for approximately 5,000 works of art in the collection of the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art (The Dorsky Museum). The assessment would be undertaken by a qualified conservation consultant and in concert with similar assessments conducted at four other organizations in Ulster County, New York. The long-term goal of this joint undertaking is the development of a Hudson Valley regional visual art collections storage facility and study center that will allow works of art from the region to be housed in a central location where they can be easily accessed for purposes of study, research, and exhibition development.
