SANTA CLARA, Calif.—May 5
NEH funds will go toward the purchase and installation of high-density storage units to house the museum’s extensive collection of 10,000 artifacts. “The new system will make the museum’s important collection much more accessible for teaching and outreach purposes,” said Rebecca Schapp, director of the de Saisset Museum. “The price tag for the complete project is $517,762,” Schapp said. The balance, after the NEH grant, is the museum’s contribution.
