Assessment and Planning for the Storage of the Photographic Collection

Hiring a conservation team to conduct an assessment of storage needs and to develop a storage concept plan for a collection of 1,500 works of art, primarily photos, produced by the artists in residence at the center since its opening in 1977. The collection also includes the Gaede/Striebel Archive, which documents--in photos and oral history audiotapes--the Woodstock Maverick Festivals of the 1920s.

The Center for Photography at Woodstock seeks funding through this grant to support an assessment of the storage needs, including storage equipment, space, and climate requirements, for approximately 1,500 works of art in the collection of the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and which are currently held on extended loan at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art (The Dorsky Museum) located at the State University of New York at New Paltz. The assessment would be undertaken by a qualified conservation consultant and in concert with similar assessments conducted at four other organizations located 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.
