BWDM to participate in the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) program
The Blackwater Draw Museum announces that it is one of 98 institutions in the United States selected to participate in the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) 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. 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.
"We are excited to participate in CAP in order to move forward with our preservation goals for our collections. Assessors will help us evaluate our collections storage and suggest improvements we can make in the future"- Samantha, BWDM Collections Manager.
The CAP program is administered by the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
