Collections Preservation Project

A general preservation assessment of the museum's collections of fine and decorative art, textiles and clothing, furniture and household objects, tools, and equipment, which document the history and culture of Sonoma County.

Upholding its commitment to the preservation and care of collections, the Sonoma County Museum is requesting support for a collections preservation assessment of the Museum's collection, with an emphasis on three-dimensional objects. The Museum will hire an independent collections management and conservation consultant to conduct a general preservation assessment including evaluation of current policies, practices, and conditions affecting the care and preservation of collections. Additionally the consultant will develop a plan for improving collections storage and recommend future action. The consultant will also conduct a workshop on preservation and storage issues for Museum staff. Nearby organizations will be invited to participate.
