Purchase of New Storage and Supplies to Re-House the Southern Utah Museum of Art's Permanent Collection

The purchase of a storage cabinet and preservation supplies for rehousing a collection of around 1,900 artworks including works on paper by Winslow Homer, paintings by Chaim Soutine, and twentieth-century textiles, photography, and ceramics. The collection is used for teaching, exhibitions, and campus loans. 

The Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA) will purchase new storage and preservation supplies required to satisfy immediate recommendations for object storage made in a Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) in 2018. Collections staff will follow a three-phase plan from September 1, 2018 to February 28, 2021 to accomplish this: 1) re-organize current flat file objects and re-house ceramic and sculptural objects, 2) de-frame and re-house new flat file-related objects, and 3) re-shelve canvas and linen paintings. By doing this, the museum will be able to provide long-term care for objects, allow for easier and safer ways to create more public access to the museum’s permanent collection, and create necessary space for SUMA to begin new acquisitions of high cultural value to the region and beyond.
