Preservation Assessment of Museum Records

A preservation assessment of the institutional records of the Columbus Museum of Art. The records, dating from 1878, document the development of the museum and the contributions of the artists represented in its holdings, and include the correspondence of George Bellows and Charles Burchfield.

The Columbus Museum of Art seeks funding from the NEH to support efforts to conduct a general preservation and access assessment of its paper and film-based historical records and papers. The assessment would be used to prepare short- and long-term recommendations for the preservation, housing, and accessibility of the historical materials. In addition to supporting the work of internal Museum staff, these materials will be of significant interest and value to art historians and historians, and to scholars of American and popular culture and cultural and ethnic studies, as well as those scholars interested in organizations and institutions that house cultural resources.
