Art Storage Screens for the Museum of Anthropology at Wake Forest University

The purchase of storage furniture for a collection of approximately 250 ethnographic objects consisting mainly of tools and weapons from around the world. To improve storage conditions, the applicant would mount storage screens on a wall to hold several oversized items from the larger collection: two Comanche hide robes and two collections consisting of hundreds of projectile points and tools from North Carolina.

The Museum of Anthropology at Wake Forest University requests funding to purchase wall mounted storage screens to rehouse oversize ethnographic weaponry and framed object collections as recommended by a previous NEH PAG. The weaponry collections include arrows, bows, spears, harpoons, staffs, and other tools and weapons too large to fit on compact storage shelves. The framed objects include two very large and recently conserved Comanche hides and historic mounted projectile point collections. All of the objects are important to the humanities as they are used in educational programming, exhibits, academic research and are available online for viewing and study. The museum requests the funds based upon recommendations from a 2006 Long Range Conservation Plan and the recent creation of a new storage facility for the museum. The grant will provide funds for the purchase of the screens and shipping costs and the museum will arrange and pay for installation.
