Historical Society Obtains Funds to Inventory Artifacts | News, Sports, Jobs
A Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grant of $8,691 was awarded this week to the Brown County Historical Society to support an ongoing inventory project of its artifact collection.
The project catalogs and photographs more than 1,800 objects in the museum’s collections storage room, including works of art as well as domestic, commercial and military artifacts from the late 19th and 20th centuries.
The grant will fund two temporary contractor positions to complete the inventory. Contractors will enter information about each artifact into the company’s electronic collections database before photographing and packing the artifacts back into their storage boxes. Anyone interested in applying for the contractor position can find more information on the company’s website or contact Curator of Collections Ryan Harren at 507-233-2624.
This project was made possible in part by the people of Minnesota through a grant funded by an appropriation to the Minnesota Historical Society from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
