An implementation project to create an energy-efficient storage facility for the history and art collections of the Genesee Country Village and Museum Art Gallery.

Genesee Country Village & Museum (GCV&M) seeks support to create a safe, secure, sustainable, and energy-efficient storage facility per the recommendations of the 2006 NEH-funded We the People assessment grant by conservator Barbara Moore. This request is part of a larger initiative to completely renovate the Art Gallery, create new collections storage area equipped with museum quality storage furniture to house our most fragile and significant collections within a sustainable, archivally acceptable environment.
