This grant will support a delegation to Cuba of art conservation students and professors in the Department of Art Conservation at the University of Delaware.  We are planning for a four to five-day trip with a focus on photograph collections and preventive conservation of all types of collections, including fine art & natural resources.  This diverse approach will offer students and recent graduates the opportunity to learn about Cuban cultural heritage and observe conservation treatment and practices in that country.  The itinerary of the trip will be developed in consultation with our Cuban counterparts, but will likely include museums, libraries, and archives, including the National Museum of Fine Art, National Library, and National Archives.  We anticipate that this visit will be inspiring to the students on the trip and will foster a long-term relationship between the University of Delaware and our Cuban colleagues in conservation and preservation.

Six stipends per year for three years to support students in the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation.  For each academic year, two stipends each will be distributed to first, second, and third-year “NEH Fellows,” a title that carries additional outreach and community engagement responsibilities.

WUDPAC is a three-year Master-level program sponsored jointly by the University of Delaware and Winterthur Museum, Garden, & Library. Founded in 1974, WUDPAC embodies both institutions' commitment to humanities education and the integration of conservation, science, and practical research. We are committed to exposing our students to broad issues in the field, providing practical experiences in ethics, multiculturalism, documentation, analysis, treatment and preventive care, and above all, collaboration and respect for the humanities.  This proposal seeks $350,000 to help sustain the education and training of our 30 Master-level students from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2023. Grant funds will be allocated to six "NEH Fellows" annually, making possible total stipend coverage for all WUDPAC students.  The commitment of our 404 graduates to-date is exemplified by their active engagement and contribution to evolving professional standards, and their advocacy worldwide.

Planning for reallocation of space to improve energy consumption and environmental conditions for the care, storage, and preservation of a diverse collection of over 12,000 paintings, photographs, and art objects.

A Conservation Assessment Program (CAP) report in 2009 recommended that the space usage in two University Museums' buildings (Old College and the adjacent Mechanical Hall) be reviewed and reformulated. Funding is sought to bring the authors of the report back to the university to undertake this essential next step. Far more than a consultancy, this project will enable two internationally recognized experts on environmental management and collections conservation--Michael C. Henry and Wendy Claire Jessup--to work with an interdisciplinary team of museum staff, students, and faculty. Together, they will analyze the environmental systems, building envelopes, and collections storage needs in order to create a comprehensive space allocation plan to optimize usage and environment in existing museum spaces. The university will support this project by waiving indirect costs, providing support for Mr. Henry to teach a course in Art Conservation, and cover costs for Museums and Facilities staff.
