Tru Vue® is partnering with the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) and The Institute of Conservation (Icon) to offer grants to support glazing applications for preservation and exhibition of museum and library collections in today’s challenging environment.
The goals for this program include increasing knowledge of glazing applications, supporting the preservation and display of collections so objects can be presented to visitors in a safe way, and encouraging the involvement of conservators in museum and library collection projects.
“We are excited to continue our support of institutions and conservators in their endeavours to preserve art and heritage for future generations, and to create an enhanced and safe viewing experience for museum visitors” said Jennifer Booth, Business Manager for Fine Art & Museums, for Tru Vue, Inc. “This is a critical time to support museums and conservation professionals who have been impacted by the pandemic. We are looking forward to supporting future conservation initiatives with our Tru Vue Conservation and Exhibition Grant program.”
Included in the Grant Program
- Cash awards up to $3,000 USD for materials, supplies and/or support needed to deliver the project.
- An in-kind donation of Optium Museum Acrylic® or UltraVue® Laminated Glass for use directly related to the conservation and display project (value estimated up to $4,000 USD)
The program is administered by The Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) and The Institute of Conservation (Icon)
