Museum appreciates grant

On behalf of the board of directors and staff of the Pratt Museum, I wish to thank the David and Mary Schroer Fund, the Gooseberry Fund and the Cottonwood Fund, donor advised funds of the Homer Foundation, for a grant of $2,940 to support the Pratt Museum's Prioritizing Collections Needs Now and for the Future project.

This project places an emphasis on computerized data entry, improved registration methods and documentation by the collections management intern, who is updating shelf lists and entering object locations into the collections database. This intern also is working with the museum's curator to replace fluids in the wet collections, along with other ongoing collections care tasks.

The Homer Foundation's continued investment in the Pratt Museum is very much appreciated. We thank them for this generous grant.

Diane Converse
