Collections Storage Improvements

The purchase of preservation supplies to improve the storage conditions of the museum's art, glass, and ceramic collections. Dating from the 18th century to the present, the art collection includes paintings, drawings, and prints of Frederick County landscapes and portraits of its residents, with some works attributed to regional artists Charles Wilson Peale, Jacob Eicholtz, and Joshua Johnson. The glass and ceramic artifacts include the works of early German immigrants to the county.

The grant will support the purchase of storage furniture and preservation supplies to rehouse the art and glass/ceramic objects in the museum's permanent collection. The grant will also support the purchase of supplies to create dust covers in the off-site storage area as well as the purchase of light meters to monitor the light levels in storage and exhibition spaces. The goals of this project are derived from recommendations based on a Conservation Assessment Program report performed in 2006.
