Rehousing the Eiteljorg Museum's Native American Collection

The purchase of storage furniture to rehouse 30 unique artifacts from the museum's Native American collections dating from the mid-19th century. These items include traditional Northwest Coast clothing such as dresses and tunics, Plains Indian horse tack including woven saddle blankets, and beadwork from eastern North American tribes.

The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art has an important collection of Native American objects related to native cultures of North America. This project continues the museum's ongoing efforts to upgrade individual storage of collections following the recommendations of a 2003 Conservation Assessment Program (CAP) survey performed by Laurie Booth of Midwest Conservation Services. NEH funds would support the purchase of a Delta Designs Ltd. oversize flat file (96 W x 39 H x 48 D) with eight 3-3/4 drawers to re-house 30 Native American cultural objects including Native American clothing, horse tack, finger weavings and contemporary examples of traditionally-made clothing, as prioritized in the CAP report.
