The hiring of a consultant to survey storage and exhibition space and make recommendations for care of the art collection, which comprises 2,094 prints, 298 drawings, 435 paintings, and 128 works in other media. Its particular strengths are in local and regional art, but the collection also documents the history of printmaking from Durer to the present. The budget also requests support for the purchase of a datalogger to record current temperature and humidity ranges.

The Allen R. Hite Art Institue, the Department of Fine Arts of the University of Louisville, will hire conservator, Shelley Paine of Nashville, TN, to conduct and initial conservation survey of the Institute's extensive art collections, the spaces in which they are exhibited, and the spaces in which the collections are stored as a beginning point for development of a thorough conservation plan and program.
