MOA Awarded NEH Grant
The Museum of Art of the University of New Hampshire has been awarded a $10,000 Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions from the National Endowment of the Humanities. The grant, designed to help small to mid-sized institutions improve the ability to preserve and care for their collections, will be used by the Museum to purchase temperature and humidity monitoring equipment, equipment to monitor and reduce light levels in exhibition and storage areas, and purchase archival storage materials. These opportunities for improvement in the Museum were identified through a Collections Assessment for Preservation Survey Grant awarded in 2019.
