Purchase Environmental Monitoring Equipment and Preservation Supplies

Purchasing environmental monitoring equipment and supplies to preserve a textile collection that relates to the history and culture of south central Wyoming. A training workshop on the appropriate handling of textiles will include staffs of neighboring cultural and history institutions.

This application is part of Phase II of a four-phase project to upgrade storage of organic artifacts held by the Laramie Plains Museum. Phase I, which is complete, was for training and inventory of textiles. Phase II is to purchase environmental monitoring equipment and materials to rehouse 3,500 textile artifacts. With this grant, environmental monitoring equipment will be purchased and 2,000 textiles will be rehoused, including men's and children's wear, dolls, Native American collections, rugs, and clothing accessories. Phase II is designed to provide the data needed to design a new HVAC system for the organic artifact storage areas and to rehouse artifacts in preparation for the move.
