Heritage Preservation Seeks Nominations for Collection Preservation Award

Heritage Preservation, in partnership with the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, is seeking nominations for the AIC/Heritage Preservation Ross Merrill Award for Outstanding Commitment to the Preservation and Care of Collections.

The award is presented annually to an organization in North America that has been exemplary in the importance and priority it has given to conservation concerns and in the commitment it has shown to the preservation and care of its cultural property within the context of its broader mission, which may include interpretation, research, scholarship, education, and/or public outreach.

Anyone may submit a nomination. Nominees should be an organization of any size responsible for cultural property that includes collections, historic sites, and/or structures. Cultural property is defined as material that may be artistic, historic, scientific, religious, or social and constitutes an invaluable and irreplaceable legacy that must be preserved for future generations. Collections can include fine arts, library and archival materials, natural history, natural science, musical instruments, textiles, technology, archaeology, ethnography, and photography.

Visit the Heritage Preservation website for complete program guidelines, information about past recipients, and nomination instructions.
