The purchase of storage supplies and equipment to rehouse a collection of 800 paintings, photographs, and works on paper ranging from the mid-19th century to the present and documenting the history and artistic production of Danish immigrants and Danish Americans.

The Danish Immigrant Museum seeks funding for archival supplies and equipment required in inventorying, digitizing, and rehousing 800 framed paintings, photographs, and works on paper in the museum collection. These pieces are part of a larger museum collection of 35,000 items that range from textiles to furniture to household objects, all of which relate to the stories of Danish immigrants and Danish Americans. The framed artifacts in particular are strong in both artistic achievements and documentation of Danish Americans, which supports the museum’s mission as the national museum to preserve and promote Danish-American culture and experience. NEH funds will be directed to the purchase of acid-free cardboard, archival folders, and a painting cart for the safe movement of framed artifacts. This project will begin January 2012 and be completed by the end of June 2012.
