Hoyt Sherman Place Foundation announces that it is one of 75 institutions from across the country selected to participate in the inaugural year of the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) program. 


Administered by the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artist Works, CAP assists museums in improving the care of their collections by providing support for a conservation assessment of the museum’s collections and buildings. A team of two preservation professionals will spend two days surveying the site and meeting with staff before preparing a comprehensive report that will identify preventive conservation priorities. The assessment report will help the museum prioritize its collections care efforts in the coming years.


Hoyt Sherman Place expects the program to be a first step in the next phase of its collections care work. “We are honored and humbled to know that the work we have done thus far on the restoration of the collection at Hoyt Sherman Place allowed us to be selected among the elite 75 institutions to be honored with a grant from the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation.” Robert Warren, Executive Director, Hoyt Sherman Place Foundation. 


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.
