Preserving the Foundation's Folk Art Collections

The purchase of storage equipment, improvement of lighting and climate control, and the rehousing of 68,000 folk art objects from North and South America, Africa, and Asia.

The Museum of International Folk Art seeks funding to reorganize and rehouse in upgraded storage more than half of its sizable collection of over 130,000 objects representing more than 100 different countries. Dating primarily from the nineteenth century to the present, the collections range from wood carvings, ceramics, metal, and works on paper to objects made from found and recycled industrial materials. The project increases access to the collection both physically and electronically and ensures its preservation for future use. The collection offers a significant resource for scholars in the humanities and is used to develop interpretive exhibitions with interactive components for the public and school groups visiting the museum.
