The Albuquerque Museum Storage and Environmental Consulting Project

A planning project for improved environmental conditions and storage for a diverse collection of 25,000 Native American, Spanish Colonial, and Anglo-American objects and documents relating to the history and art of the Rio Grande Valley and the Albuquerque area.

The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History is embarking on Phase II of its commitment to renovate the museum structure, update permanent history exhibits, and enlarge collections storage. The primary goal of the planning grant project would deal specifically with developing a comprehensive strategy that would allow the museum to best utilize the additional 9,500 sq. ft. of storage included in the upcoming building renovation; generate a prioritized collections content survey in a context of preventative conservation mandates related to specific collections types; acquire specialized storage equipment meeting professionally accepted standards in all storage areas; identify conservation treatment priorities; address and formalize off-site storage facility policies and procedures; and develop targeted funding resources that will allow the museum to continue collections-related upgrades into the foreseeable future.
