Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center

Log Number: IGSM-253549-OMS-23

The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center will inventory and rehouse approximately 1,500 large objects from its collection pertaining to the history of North Central Washington, including objects related to the region’s Native American, pioneer, geological, industrial, and art histories. The organization will hire a collections inventory specialist to work with staff and volunteers to conduct a physical inventory of the collection. Staff will photograph the collection, input data into a collections management database, and develop a collection deaccessioning plan. The project activities will address both a backlog of objects that need to be inventoried and threats to the collection posed by overcrowded storage conditions.
