As museums confront the reality of perpetually growing collections and ever shrinking storage space they must confront the difficult and often overdue task of collection review and refinement. History Colorado and the Indianapolis Museum of Art have created two similar, but highly individualized, approaches to assessing their collection and prioritizing collective objectives and deaccession goals. Learn how these projects have been implemented and how they’ve helped their collections. Originally presented at the AAM Annual Meeting in New Orleans, CSAAM is bringing this presentation to a new audience via Zoom webinar.
– Robin Lawrence, Manager of Curatorial Affairs, Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields
– Jennifer Rigsby, Associate Registrar for Collections, Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields
– Alisa DiGiacomo, Director of Curatorial Services and Senior Curator, History Colorado
