Hiring a conservator to oversee the remounting of Tlingit blankets and other textiles that reflect the art and culture of an Alaskan Native community. The project would also purchase the supplies and materials necessary to mount the textiles, which are part of a permanent exhibit.

The scope of this project is to mount our collection of five Chilkat (Tlingit) weavings, Button Blanket/robe and Ravenstail Blanket/robe for exhibition (7 objects total). The goal of this project is to conserve and exhibit Native textiles of high cultural and historic value. Current exhibition mounts have been assessed as inadequate, placing preventable stress on the objects and making them inaccessible for monitoring, cleaning and general protection.
