The purchase and installation of storage furniture and the rehousing of modern and contemporary art collections, which encompass strong holdings of painting and sculpture since 1960, 20th-century American and international photography, American impressionist and tonalist painting, and regional art.

The Akron Art Museum respectfully requests a $309,000 grant from the NEH for the Museum's Collection Project, which is aimed at ensuring access to and perservation of the collection. NEH support is specifically sought for 1) the purchase and installation of collection storage equipment and furniture; and 2) salary support for temporary staffing to help prepare and re-house the collection and to update information in the collections database. NEH funding will enable the museum, for the first time in its history, to custom design its storage facilities for these objects from the ground up with proper storage furniture to ensure safe storage conditions, maximize space efficiency, provide room for growth and facilitate greater access.
