    Abstract:
    The Wadsworth Atheneum respectfully requests $400,000 in outright grant funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities Grants for Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections program. Funds will be used to acquire custom-designed storage equipment for its furniture, metalwork, ceramics, glass, and sculpture collections as part of the renovations scheduled for Phase I of the Collection Storage Renovation Project. Phase I comprises the reconfiguration of the basement of the Museum's Morgan building to create and outfit storage rooms for its furniture, metalwork, ceramics, glass, and sculpture collections.
    Notes:
    Implementation of improved storage for the museum's American and European furniture, metalwork, ceramics, glass, and sculpture. These 12,600 objects would be rehoused in new storage furniture in the basement of the Morgan building, which would be reconfigured to provide a secure zone with improved climate control, security, fire protection, and lighting systems.
