Abstract

Advances in conservation employed at the Arizona State Museum have expanded the research options for over 35,000 ethnographic and archaeological perishable objects since 2012. The Woven Wonders basketry conservation project has provided increased access to the collection, instituted new conservation treatment technique, initiated new research topics, provided advanced educational opportunities, instigated new forms of collaborative conservation, and reduced material loss from items in the collection. The Woven Wonders project was funded with a Save America's Treasure grant, two Institute of Museum and Library Services grants, one Preservation Training Grant, two Kress Foundation grants, and numerous private donations. The project has resulted in a state-of-the-art visible storage vault with an adjacent interpretive gallery that is home to the Woven Through Time: American Treasures of Native Basketry and Fiber Art.
