ELKHART — The Midwest Museum of American Art recently announced it is one of 75 institutions in the U.S. selected to participate in the Collections Assessment for Preservation program.
CAP helps museums improve the care of their collections by providing support for a general conservation assessment of the museum’s collections and buildings, according to museum officials. The museum will work with a team of preservation professionals to identify preventive conservation priorities. The final assessment report will help the museum prioritize its collections care efforts in the coming years.
The CAP program is administered by the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
