Conservation Assessment of Sculpture and Tribal Arts Collections

A conservation assessment of the center's sculpture and tribal arts collections that would provide guidance for treatment, storage, and care of these materials. Sculptures in the collection include works by Richard Serra, Lee Bontecou, Charles Joseph Biederman, and Louise Bourgeois.

The Des Moines Art Center respectfully requests $5,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support a comprehensive detailed conservation survey of the Art Center's sculpture and tribal works collection. Donna Haberman, senior objects conservator from the Midwest Art Conservation Center, has agreed to work onsite to evaluate our entire sculpture and tribal works collections. We will concentrate on the 68 sculptures and 75 tribal works added to our collections since 1991, however, all 215 sculptures and 112 tribal works will be surveyed.
