Hiring a conservation team to conduct an assessment of storage for a collection of 2,100 works of art associated with the Woodstock Art Colony, founded in 1919. The collection consists of paintings, works on paper, sculpture, decorative arts, and photography that document styles and movements in American art, including Arts and Crafts, Works Progress Administration-era, and Abstract Expressionism, as well as contemporary works up to the present.

Funds received from this grant would support an assessment by qualified conservation consultants of the storage needs, including storage equipment, space, and climate requirements, for approximately 2,100 works of art in the collection of the Woodstock Artists Association, Inc. (a.k.a. Woodstock Artists Association & Museum or WAAM). The WAAM is in critical need of short- and long-term solutions for their collection storage needs. Conservator assessments and reports will provide WAAM a set of recommendations that point out weaknesses in existing storage and will enable improvements and upgrades to the existing storage in the short term. The assessment will also be undertaken in conjunction with similar evaluations being conducted at WAAM’s partner organizations in the Hudson Valley Visual Arts Collection Consortium. The long-term goal of this joint undertaking is the development of a regional collection storage facility and study center to ensure state-of-the-art care.
