Subsidized preservation surveys

The Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA) is pleased to
announce its third 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.

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 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 here
