The Clothesline Project/Exhibit Preservation
Statewide Historic and Cultural Grants. $5,250,000 the first year and $5,250,000 the second year are for history programs and projects operated or conducted by or through local, county, regional, or other historical or cultural organizations; or for activities to preserve significant historic and cultural resources.
All short term outcomes were achieved. The appropriate storage materials were secured, appropriate shipping supplies have been secured. All of the memorial shirts have been photographed and those images are cataloged by year and name. Each shirt has been properly stored in archive boxes. The previous MN Historical grant funded a textile consultant who provided clear direction for this grant --- listing specific supplies needed for proper storage and clear direction on how to store the shirts. The grant activities were very specific and we were able to fully achieve the outcomes.
