The purchase and installation of high-density mobile storage equipment for the Museum's collection of 1,259 three-dimensional objects, which include 19th-century Western sculpture, pre-Columbian Caribbean cultural artifacts, and modern Puerto Rican folk art.

The proposed project addresses Museo de Arte de Ponce's need to strengthen and enhance the care of its 1,259 three-dimensional objects collection. The project goal is to achieve a significant improvement in the visible storage area through acquisition and installation of a high density, manual, mobile, storage system. After a two- year renovation and expansion project, Museo de Arte de Ponce reopened its facilities on November 14, 2010, with a new 38,000 sq ft Annex Building that includes a 4,090 sq ft visible artworks storage of which 717 sq ft are dedicated to guarantee proficient space for the storage of this collection. Acquisition of storage units will contribute significantly to the long-term conservation of the objects, to prolong their useful life and guarantee a lifelong access for future generations.
