WHAT WE FUND:
Support is available for conservation treatment of paintings, works on paper (including individual drawings, watercolors, prints or photographs), textiles (including costumes, domestic textiles and upholstery), furniture, frames, sculpture, historical, ethnographic and decorative objects.
Frames are an integral part of a painting and applicants must address frame condition and treatment when applying for painting conservation. Support is also available for treatment costs for supports, stands and mounts that are integral to the treatment of the object.
Grants will support in-state transportation costs for the objects and/or the conservators, and the cost of insurance for the work(s) to be treated.
Requests for treatment of outdoor sculpture must include the description of an on-going maintenance program already in existence, or one to be implemented, at your institution. An engineer's report may be required for some sculptures.
WHAT WE DO NOT FUND:
Grant will not support treatment of
archival collections. Grant will not support staff salaries. Funds
are not available for preventative care, re-housing or
re-formatting of objects, purchases of storage furniture,
or upgrading environmental systems.
