The hiring of a consultant to assess the impact of lighting conditions on the museum's collection of approximately 13,000 historic objects, including a carousel, antique automobiles, military miniatures, early firearms and tools, and various types of American art, such as bird carvings, ceramics, glass, baskets, lithographs, and paintings. The grant will also support the purchase of supplies to help control damage to the collection caused by both natural and artificial light.

This Preservation Assistance Grant would support the preservation of Heritage Museums & Gardens' collections through a study of the museum's lighting conditions as recommended in the museum's recent Conservation Assessment Program report. Our assessor recommended that a lighting study be the museum's number one priority. This study will further the museum's efforts to care for its collections in the best manner possible.
