Kelsey Strategic Programs (Fund Code 302974)

This fund supports Kelsey exhibitions, conservation, and publications. The Museum mounts two special public exhibitions each year, with plans for expanded programming. Exhibitions cost from $50,000 to $100,000 each. The budgets typically include special items on loan from other world-class museums, the publication of a catalogue, special labels and graphics, shipping costs, insurance, and special display cases. The conservation of a single complex object can cost up to $2,000. And a richly illustrated exhibition catalogue may run to as much as $10,000 in printing costs.
