The Gregory Allicar Museum of Art

A Response for the Decades: a disaster response plan for the museum

As part of their national accreditation, the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art prepared an emergency response plan, identifying which pieces they would ‘rescue’, in case there is a flood or other natural disaster affecting the collection. “As a land-grant institution, our collection is part of the public trust and we hold it and care for it for everyone. We have to protect the collections from all forms of water for ten more years and beyond.”
