The Henry Ford
Log Number: MA-251706-OMS-22
The Henry Ford will conserve, rehouse, and create fully digital catalog records for objects in its collection relating to agriculture and the environment. Museum staff will conduct mold remediation, cleaning, and stabilizing treatments to conserve objects. To support the project, the museum will hire a full-time conservator and a collections management specialist as well as a part-time cataloger and an associate curator. Project staff will create and update object records with photography and improve both physical and virtual access to collections and objects through rehousing and digitization. They will make catalog records available to the public online with associated object narratives about the history of food systems and the environment.
