Renovation of space in the Ethnology section of MNA’s Native Peoples of the Colorado Plateau exhibition.

MNA requests an NEH Challenge Grant of $122,524 to renovate the Ethnology section of our Native Peoples of the Colorado Plateau exhibit, which will strengthen humanities programming and serve as a model for planned renovations of the entire museum’s exhibit program. NEH support will make possible critical capital improvements: new flooring, new lighting, new HVAC, purchase of cases for collections display. Our recently completed roof promotes these upgrades to our top priorities. These key infrastructure improvements will enable us to implement plans for refreshed exhibit content delivered via new graphic panels, additional object displays, and a technology overlay with dynamic media components. We will proceed to planning and implementation phases for a complete renovation of the archaeology and ethnology galleries to create a vibrant, multimedia exhibit that will form the core of our humanities programming at MNA and and serve as a model for renovation of the entire museum.

Planning for a traveling exhibition on Hopi culture as explicated through Hopi eyes.

The Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) and the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office (HCPO) are planning an exhibit about the Hopi world, entitled S?itala: Life in Balance, World in Bloom. The Hopi term s?itala (see-tah-lah) describes the ?land brightened with flowers,? a concept that metaphorically expresses the reciprocity between humans and the natural world that is necessary for all elements of life to thrive. S?itala will explain Hopi ideas about art, environment, and human aesthetic activity based on the authority of nearly 40 Hopi cultural specialists and artists who have contributed to thematic development and exhibit content. MNA is requesting $40,000 of a total project cost of $75,174 (direct costs) to convene an advisory team of Hopi cultural specialists, museum professionals, archaeologists, and anthropologists to produce draft text, begin exhibit design, and complete other tasks outlined in the narrative

A project to rehouse 2,202 works of art on paper from the fine arts collection, many of them by Native American artists, in acid-free presentation mats and in new storage furniture, and to make them available through the museum’s online collections portal. 

The Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) requests $343,812 from NEH to support a three-year rehousing project focused on 2,202 works, many Native American, in MNA’s fine arts collection. Largely consisting of works of art on paper (watercolors, drawings, etc.), they are in the state-of-the-art, platinum LEED certified Easton Collections Center (ECC). The works remain in acidic boxes and mats in which they have been stored for decades in old storage. At preservation risk in these containers, they were moved to the ECC in 2019 where they are stored on temporary racks or leaning against storage walls. MNA will improve physical access to works on paper by rehousing them in acid free presentation mats and storing them in new containers in mobile storage furniture purchased during this project. Intellectual access will be improved as collection data is posted through the Argus.net public web portal to a new audience including Native American, the public, and scholars from around the nation.

An implementation project involving the purchase of storage furniture and supplies to consolidate and rehouse 3,566 linear feet of anthropological archives currently held in several locations on the museum's campus.

The Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) requests a total of $164,858 from the National Endowment for the Humanities for a three year project to address the preventative preservation needs of archives at MNA. The goal of this project is to improve archive storage conditions while also upgrading intellectual control and increasing ease of access to these important records. Most of MNA's archival records are in dispersed storage locations and are poorly housed in acidic or unstable containers. To achieve the project goal MNA's objectives are to relocate 3566 linear feet of archives from dispersed buildings for assessment, rehousing and consolidation in the Easton Collection Center (ECC) which is LEEDs certified at the Platinum level. With NEH support MNA will purchase rehousing supplies and compactor shelving for installation on rails already in place in the ECC.

Funding supports the purchase of museum storage furniture and rehousing supplies to rehouse three major collections: 829 Katsina dolls, 4,375 prehistoric ceramic vessels, and 200 linear feet of archives and 3,000 glass plate negatives and lantern slides that document the museum's collections. For each collection, the Museum will also purchase three high efficiency particulate (HEPA) filter vacuums for housekeeping.

This project seeks to complete the upgrade of storage conditions for the three the collections in the most critical and immediate need as well as purchase housekeeping equipment to assist with the implementation of a housekeeping policy to maintain the new Easton Collection Center. Upon accomplishing these objectives, this project will remedy imminent risk of deterioration to MNA's Katsina doll collection, Prehistoric ceramics collection and Archival Manuscript Collection, as well as provide housekeeping equipment that will benefit all priority one and two collections items stored within the new facilities. Support from NEH for these initiatives will allow MNA to provide the standard of care necessary for the preservation of these collections, the scope of which is unmatched on the Colorado Plateau. The project will run from January 2010 through to June 2011.

The purchase of filing cabinets to rehouse archival records related to archaeology, ethnology, and fine art collections documenting native cultures of the Southwest over a period of 10,000 years. They include journals, letters, notebooks, sketchbooks, legal documents, cartographic records, photographic images in diverse formats, and audiovisual materials.

The purpose of this project is to rehouse the museum’s registration/object files by purchasing fire proof and impact resistant filing cabinets. The registration/object files contain photos and paper documentation such as donor correspondence, conservation reports, oral histories with donors or artists, newspaper articles, prize ribbons, artist profiles, board meeting minutes, staff memos and legal documentation of the museum’s collections, which include fine arts, ethnology, archaeology, botany, paleontology, entomology, and zoology. This documentation of an object’s history is communicated to the public through exhibits, publications, tours and can be utilized by researchers, often resulting in published articles. This is particularly significant with natural history and archaeology collections, where the registration/object files contains permits, field correspondence, and other documentation that is cited in published reports appearing in scholarly journals.

The rehousing of approximately 3,500 acetate negatives contained in a photographic archive documenting research on the Colorado Plateau region. The collection covers the ethnographic work of the museum's founders, Harold S. and Mary-Russell Ferrell Colton, who studied Hopi culture and society. The photoarchives contain images of the 84-year history of the Heritage Program Festival, which captures the artistic work of various Native American tribes. The photos are used by tribal members for understanding the techniques and design elements used to create pottery, basketry, and paintings, as well as for deriving inspiration for current artistic creations. The rehousing of the negatives in archival sleeves will help prepare at-risk images for future digitization.

The goal of this project is to address the urgent top priority preservation needs of the Museum of Northern Arizona's (MNA) endangered photoarchives as identified by a Photographic Materials Conservator during an August 2012 IMLS-funded conservation survey. Serving as an important resource for scholars, staff, tribes, and the public, the photoarchives are unique, irreplaceable, primary documents that record 84 years of research and collaboration between staff, researchers, and tribes in northern Arizona. Activity 1: rehouse six drawers of acetate negatives that are at risk of deterioration due to vinegar syndrome. Application of appropriate rehousing materials will stabilize the acetates until they are digitized and frozen. Activity 2: locate and rehouse prints associated with the negatives. Activity 3: transcribe information physically located with the acetates and their associated prints. This information, along with essential metadata, will be entered into the archives database.

The purchase of storage furniture and the relocation of the museum's 6,882-item regional ethnographic collection to a new repository.

The goal of this project is to improve the environmental conditions under which anthropology collections of the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) are housed through the purchase of museum quality cabinetry and compactor carriages, hiring of a Move Coordinator, and ongoing consultation with MNA?s consultant conservator. As a part of this goal MNA will construct a new collection center to house 1st and 2nd priority collections in 2007/08. This goal is identified as the top priority preservation need in the MNA?s 2005 Preservation Plan and in the Collections section of the MNA 2006-2011 Institutional Plan. In addition, conservation and museum consultants (IMLS, MAPII, CMAP) have identified building and storage improvements as top priorities.
