Preserving Art Collections of the Walker Art Center

The purchase of storage furniture and rehousing of paintings, sculpture, and archival collections that document the development of contemporary art in America.

The Walker Art Center respectfully requests a $292,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities Stabilization of Humanities Collections Grant Program to support the protection and stabilization of objects in the Permanent Collection and irreplaceable, historically significant archival materials. The proposed project covers the acquisition and installation of painting screens, moving textile storage units, object storage cabinets, and high-density storage unit for archival materials, enabling the Walker to account for 30 years of continued growth in its collections. By increasing its storage capacity, the Walker will improve accessibility to and the safety of works in these collections.
