Storage and Environmental Improvements for the La Salle Art Museum

The purchase of environmental monitoring equipment and storage supplies and furniture that would improve care for a collection of 5,000 works of European and American art from the Renaissance to the present. The consultant who conducted a conservation assessment survey and recommended the equipment, supplies, and furniture would return for a half day consultation after their installation.

As stated in the 2007 Conservation Assessment survey, improving collections storage and environmental conditions are a top priority for the preservation of the La Salle Art Museum's unique collections. The Museum has already made many of the improvements recommended in the report and requests funding to finish the project. Collections stewardship is vital to ensuring the preservation of the museum's collections for present and future generations. The completion of these upgrades will bring the La Salle Art Museum in line with current museum standards.
