Museum of Art at the University of New Hampshire announces that it is one of 79 institutions in the United States selected to participate in the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) program.

CAP program helps museums improve the quality of care of their collections by providing expert support which includes conservation assessments for museum collections and buildings. The Museum of Art will work with a team of preservation professionals to address conservation priorities. The final assessment report will help the museum prioritize its collection care efforts in the coming years.

“This is an incredible opportunity to have a team of conservation and preservation specialists take stock of our collection and facilities. We welcome their insights and recommendations to ensure we care for works of art entrusted to us according to best professional standards in our field.” says Kristina Durocher, director of the museum.

The CAP program is administered by FAIC through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal grant making agency that supports museums and libraries.

The Museum of Art at the University of New Hampshire is located at 30 Academic Way and specializes in prints and drawings, paintings by regional artists, mid-20th century American and European photographs, Japanese prints, and African art. Its hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday 12 to 4 p.m. Learn more at cola.unh.edu/museum-art.
