Hiring a consultant to assess the storage needs and develop a plan to house a collection of approximately 1,000 works of art associated with the founders and artists of the Byrdcliffe Art Colony, the Hudson Valley's first art school, founded by Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead and Jane Byrd McCall Whitehead in 1903. The collection includes paintings, textiles, furniture, ceramics, works on paper, and photography.

Funds received from this grant would support an assessment of the storage needs, including storage equipment, space and climate requirements, for approximately 1,000 works of art in the collection of the Byrdcliffe Collection of the Woodstock Guild of Craftsmen, Inc. (Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild). The assessment would be undertaken by a qualified conservation consultant and in concert with similar assessments conducted at four other organizations in Ulster County, New York. The long-term goal of this joint undertaking is the development of a Hudson Valley regional visual art collections storage facility and study center that will allow works of art from the region to be housed in a central location where they can be easily accessed for purposes of study, research, and exhibition development.
