Renovation of and additions to existing galleries on the three public floors of the museum's historic Eliza Radeke Building, renovation that will allow the reinstallation and reinterpretation of the permanent collection.

The RISD Museum requests an $800,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to dramatically improve access to the humanities in the Museum's historic Eliza Radeke Building. NEH funds, along with matching gifts, will be used to renovate and add galleries on the three public floors of this building. The Museum's internationally significant collections of art will be reinstalled and reinterpreted to promote greater understanding of the humanities. Improved object presentations, graphics, explanatory labels, maps, videos, and an audiio tour will elucidate the context of works of art within the framework of the humanities for students, scholars, family groups and the general public.This project represents the first time in the institution's 129 year history that the permanent collection will be reinstalled in a comprehensive way with a unified vision for its interpretation.

The retention of eleven staff positions to inventory, assess, photograph, and rehouse approximately 900 objects in the Lucy Truman Aldrich collection of Asian costume and textiles. 

From June 15 to December 31, 2020, the RISD Museum will carry out a critical project that encompasses inventorying, assessing, photographing, and rehousing roughly 900 objects in our internationally renowned Lucy Truman Aldrich collection of Asian costume and textiles. The project was meant to begin this summer with support from a summer intern, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our closure has forced staff to pivot to remote working and teaching, and the internship will take place virtually. This project was already fundamental to our work toward providing access to the museum’s collection for all, but it is now more vital than ever. Viewing objects in our study rooms and galleries is currently impossible, and this popular collection lacks adequate documentation for remote learning. This request will allow us to fully staff and carry out the work as planned, with necessary adjustments to ensure health and safety.

The rehousing of approximately 700 historical European and American wallpapers from the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth, 500 of which were collected by French artist Charles Huard and his wife, American writer Frances Wilson Huard. The collection includes examples from manufacturers Zuber, Joseph Dufour, and Jean-Baptiste Réveillon that are representations of highly skilled and time-intensive production techniques, including the use of hand-drawn and hand-carved woodblocks for printing. The wallpapers have been displayed in exhibitions exploring changing design influences and crafting techniques over time, and have also been made available for student research. Because of the discovery of arsenic in some of the wallpapers, these activities have been halted. The proposed rehousing project would help to stabilize examples and make them accessible again for research and display.

This proposed project at the RISD Museum focuses on our 18th- and 19th-century wallpaper collection, which comprises the period during which arsenic was widely used in the production of wallpaper paints. This request would support the rehousing and, where needed, cataloging of this collection, in order to improve both safety and access.
