Grants of up to $7,500 to New York nonprofit organizations, historical organizations, cultural institutions, and museums for the preservation of cultural and historical collections. Governmental museums and historic sites are required to consult with program staff regarding eligibility prior to applying. Funding is intended to support conservation treatments of paintings, photographs, sculptures, frames, textiles, and furniture performed or supervised by professional conservators.
A partnership of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and Greater Hudson Heritage Network (GHHN) that provides support for treatment procedures to aid in stabilizing and preserving objects held in collections of museums, historical and cultural organizations in New York State. Objects that interpret the history or heritage of New York State are strongly encouraged for conservation. The Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation has provided additional dedicated support for conservation treatment projects in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
Funding is available for the following:
- Support is available for conservation treatment of paintings, works on paper (including individual drawings, watercolors, prints or photographs), textiles (including costumes, domestic textiles and upholstery), furniture, frames, sculpture, historical, ethnographic and decorative objects.
- Frames are an integral part of a painting and applicants must address frame condition and treatment when applying for painting conservation. Support is also available for treatment costs for supports, stands and mounts that are integral to the treatment of the object.
- Grants will support in-state transportation costs for the objects and/or the conservators, and the cost of insurance for the work(s) to be treated.
- Requests for treatment of outdoor sculpture must include the description of an on-going maintenance program already in existence, or one to be implemented, at the institution. An engineer's report may be required for some sculptures.
