Art Conservation Facilities Improvement and Conservation Science Endowment

Expansion of conservation facilities and endowment for a professorship in conservation.

The Buffalo State College Art Conservation Department requests an NEH Challenge Grant of $200,000, with the total sum of $1 million intended for facilities improvements and a conservation science endowment. The expansion of department facilities will allow for enhanced relationships with community partners and the transformation of the department through the development of the Buffalo Conservation Consortium, an entity that will provide conservation services to regional humanities institutions while giving students unparalleled opportunities in conservation treatment experience. The conservation science endowment will help complete a campaign that will support a professorship as well as art conservation research. The professorship is currently funded by a Mellon Foundation grant; an endowed position will allow for leadership in the field and improved instruction for our students, enabling them to become skilled custodians of our nation's historic, cultural, and artistic heritage.
