The purchase of preservation supplies, storage furniture, and environmental monitoring equipment for Loyola University Museum of Art collections totaling almost 900 objects that are used in art and art history programs at the university and by the public. The Martin D'Arcy collection focuses on European Christian art from the 12th to the late 18th century, while the LUMA collection explores spirituality in art from antiquity to the present and contains Neolithic idols as well as over 500 nativity scenes from more than 100 countries.

To support the purchase of the following conservation-grade storage materials for Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA): ethafoam to line open metal shelving units; acid-free cardboard to interleave between framed pieces; two Montel Modulart painting racks with retractable panels to store paintings which are currently soft-packed in acidic cardboard slipcases and leaned against the wall. To ensure the long-term safety of exhibited works, LUMA will purchase thermohygrometers to measure the microclimate within display cases and a HEPA vacuum to clean the display environment. In addition, to improving preservation of LUMA's four collections, these supplies upgrade storage of loaned materials for temporary exhibitions.
