The purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse works of art on paper at a regional museum dedicated to the arts and history of the Saco River Valley. The collection includes prints and drawings by local 19th-century masters Charles Henry Granger and Gibeon Elden Bradbury; prints by Winslow Homer, who painted Saco Bay; and photographs by Edward Curtis, Wallace Nutting, and John Johnson (one of the museum's founders and a pioneer of early photography). The collection allows researchers and visitors to explore local and regional traditions in the context of national trends in American art history.

The Saco Museum seeks $6,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to purchase compact, secure, acid-free storage housing for its collection of works on paper in the form of solander-style museum cases and standard-size matboard. The project will include the purchase of these materials as well as re-housing collections objects and inventorying their new storage locations.
