Measurable Outcome(s)

The target was narrowly defined as the completion of a general conservation assessment and a long-range conservation plan by the Midwest Art Conservation Center in Minneapolis for the Hillstrom Museum of Art in St. Peter. The assessment was successfully completed and the long-range conservation plan, attached below, was produced. The plan was reviewed by Museum personnel for accuracy and to make certain it met the criteria of the project, and after some adjustment from this editing process, it was put into its final form (as attached).
