PB-274117-20Preservation and Access: Cooperative Agreements and Special Projects (P&A)Monhegan MuseumWorld War II and Monhegan: A multimedia online exhibition depicting the wartime experience of the residents of a remote island.6/25/2020 - 2/28/2021$38,409.00Jennifer Pye   Monhegan MuseumMonheganME04852USA2020U.S. HistoryCooperative Agreements and Special Projects (P&A)Preservation and Access384090384090

Four staff members and one web design consultant, as well as necessary materials and supplies, to develop the platform for a digital exhibit, “World War II: On Island and Abroad,” that will allow visitors to virtually engage with the museum’s archives through multimedia stories curated from the collection.

The Monhegan Museum of Art & History will create an online exhibition platform that will increase access to the museum’s holdings. The pilot exhibition: "World War II: On Island and Abroad" will use artworks, oral histories, moving images, photographs, letters, and ephemera to communicate the stories of a remote island community in wartime. Professional training received while constructing this exhibition will allow museum staff to build additional displays and expand outreach.

An implementation project to improve energy efficiency through improved lighting and non-mechanical climate control in the museum’s seasonal displays, and optimize climate control systems in the museum’s off-season storage vaults for a collection of art, photography, and material culture that chronicles the history of Monhegan Island, Maine, from Native fishing sites to an art colony that flourished from the mid-1800s to the present.

The Monhegan Museum has developed a plan to address the serious environmental issues that pose a threat to the long-term care and conservation of the Museum’s varied and significant collection of artwork, documents, photographs, and artifacts chronicling the unique history and culture of Monhegan Island, Maine.  This implementation will focus on the use of energy efficient low impact lighting, effective non-mechanical climate-control options for the Museum’s seasonal display facilities; and optimizing the existing climate-control systems in the Museum’s off-season storage vaults using sustainable technologies with an eye towards increased energy-efficiency, and ultimately, reduced energy consumption.

Planning for improved environmental conditions to protect a collection of art, photography, and material culture that chronicles the history of Monhegan Island, Maine, ranging from early Native American fishing sites to an art colony that has flourished from the mid-1800s to the present. The planning team would investigate non-mechanical options for reducing humidity and improving conditions in the historic Lighthouse Keeper's House and the Gallery, the museum's seasonal display facilities, and optimize the existing climate control systems in the off-season storage vaults to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption.

The Monhegan Museum's Planning for a Sustainable Preservation Environment project will assemble a group of skilled professionals to work collaboratively to develop a plan that addresses several serious environmental issues that pose a threat to the long-term care and conservation of the Museum's varied and significant collection of artwork, documents, photographs, and artifacts chronicling the unique history and culture of Monhegan Island, Maine. This team's focus will be on two distinct areas of remediation, the first being the investigation and small scale implementation of effective non-mechanical climate-control options for the Museum's seasonal display facilities, and the second being the pursuit of optimizing the existing climate-control systems in the Museum's off-season storage vaults with an eye towards increased energy-efficiency, and ultimately, reduced energy consumption.

The purchase of equipment to monitor environmental conditions and improve the care of collections that document the history of the Monhegan Light Station and Monhegan Island. The collections range from material culture collections that reflect the history of Native Americans who used the island as a seasonal fishing post to works of art by such artists as Robert Henri, Edward Redfield, George Bellows, Edward Hopper, and others who were part of Monhegan Island's art colony.

Funding will support the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment to gauge the humidity, temperature and light levels in historic buildings housing artwork, photographs, documents, books, textiles, and other objects related to the history of Monhegan Island. A conservator will train the museum staff in the use of the monitoring equipment and interpretation of data collected.
