University of Delaware Delegation to Visit Cultural Heritage Institutions in Cuba

This grant will support a delegation to Cuba of art conservation students and professors in the Department of Art Conservation at the University of Delaware.  We are planning for a four to five-day trip with a focus on photograph collections and preventive conservation of all types of collections, including fine art & natural resources.  This diverse approach will offer students and recent graduates the opportunity to learn about Cuban cultural heritage and observe conservation treatment and practices in that country.  The itinerary of the trip will be developed in consultation with our Cuban counterparts, but will likely include museums, libraries, and archives, including the National Museum of Fine Art, National Library, and National Archives.  We anticipate that this visit will be inspiring to the students on the trip and will foster a long-term relationship between the University of Delaware and our Cuban colleagues in conservation and preservation.

Preserving Material Culture by Enhancing the University of Delaware Historic Costume and Textiles Collection

The rehousing of over 900 shoes, hats, and flat textiles from the Historic Costumes and Textiles Collection representing American and Western European fashion history from the 1800s to the present, as well as traditional garments from India, China, and Myanmar.  The collection is used in exhibitions, scholarly research, and course design in fashion history and to illustrate cultural changes in dress over time. The project would also involve the installation of programmable light-switch timers in exhibition spaces to reduce light exposure for the sensitive textiles in the collection.

This project focuses on activities to significantly enhance artifact preservation, and the storage and exhibition areas of the Collection. First, additional storage furniture is needed to house flat textiles, hats and shoes in a new storage area dedicated to the Collection. Second, archival resources will be obtained for proper preservation and storage of footwear and headwear artifacts and flat textiles. These include polyethylene foam to line shelves, Abaca tissue paper and polyester batting to support the shape of the shoes and hats, and archival quality corrugated board to create mounts to hold hats above the shelf. Third, to limit exposure to fluorescent lighting in the exhibition cases, programmable wall light-switch timers will be installed.

University of Delaware Museums: Planning for Consolidated and Sustainable Collections

Planning for reallocation of space to improve energy consumption and environmental conditions for the care, storage, and preservation of a diverse collection of over 12,000 paintings, photographs, and art objects.

A Conservation Assessment Program (CAP) report in 2009 recommended that the space usage in two University Museums' buildings (Old College and the adjacent Mechanical Hall) be reviewed and reformulated. Funding is sought to bring the authors of the report back to the university to undertake this essential next step. Far more than a consultancy, this project will enable two internationally recognized experts on environmental management and collections conservation--Michael C. Henry and Wendy Claire Jessup--to work with an interdisciplinary team of museum staff, students, and faculty. Together, they will analyze the environmental systems, building envelopes, and collections storage needs in order to create a comprehensive space allocation plan to optimize usage and environment in existing museum spaces. The university will support this project by waiving indirect costs, providing support for Mr. Henry to teach a course in Art Conservation, and cover costs for Museums and Facilities staff.

Preserving the Historic Costume and Textiles Collection of the Fashion and Apparel Studies Department

Funding supports the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment, light filtering sleeves, storage furniture, and preservation supplies to house the Historic Costume and Textiles Collection. The items include clothing, accessories, and household textiles, many dating from the 18th century. The collection is used in graduate and undergraduate courses in costume history and collections management, in research, and in exhibitions.

The Fashion and Apparel Studies Department at the University of Delaware is seeking funding to enhance the preservation, storage and exhibition spaces of the Historic Costume and Textiles Collection. Purchase and use of these items will fulfill recommendations made concerning the preservation of the Collection in the 2008 Delaware Collections Stewardship Project assessment. This project is focused on obtaining two types of resources that will significantly enhance the storage and exhibition areas of the Collection. First, to provide a controlled environment for storage and exhibition, environmental monitoring equipment, and UV light filtering products will be obtained. Second, to enhance preservation and storage conditions, the metal bars used for hanging garment storage will be replaced with bars of a smaller circumference and acid-free storage boxes for glass-plate negatives will be obtained to allow for proper storage of these artifacts. Start date 01-01-2010 end date 12-31-2010.
