2nd Annual ICA Subsidized Survey

The Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA) is pleased to announce
its second annual "Subsidized Survey Program." The purpose of the
program is to help a cultural institution identify its preservation
needs.  The information gained through the assessment can help an
institution raise funds or apply for grants to address those
preservation needs. For a description of the 2007 recipients, see ICA

The ICA will offer a collection survey focusing on a pre-selected
group of artifacts within an institution. An ICA conservator will
visit the institution to examine the objects on-site for up to two
days, and written condition reports and treatment recommendations
will be provided.  The institution will be asked to contribute only
the travel costs associated with the on-site visit(s).

Any non-profit cultural institution that can demonstrate a
commitment to collections care is eligible to apply for this survey.
The application form can be found at


Applications can be mailed, e-mailed, or faxed and are due October
31, 2008.  Preference will be given to applicants in Ohio and its
adjoining states. Contact Field Services Officer Nicole Hayes at
