Preservation project funded at Peabody Museum
The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology has received $80,968 from the Getty Grant Program for a Conservation Survey of the Museum's 1,250 works of art on paper, paintings, and historic frames. Funding supports the services of three independent conservators who will implement the conservation survey, and the hiring of a museum preparator who will rehouse the 950 works of art on paper in new archival-quality mats and boxes for improved research access and long-term preservation.
This preservation project is the first necessary phase to improve the public access to this art/ethnographic collection.
