Grant To Aid In Preservation Of SUNO's African Art

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Museum Studies Master's Program at Southern University at New Orleans has received a $5,234 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

         SUNO, in a news release Wednesday, said that the grant is for development of a long-term plan to preserve the University's Norma Wolff Collection of African Art.

         The Museum Studies Program is working on a plan that would involve hiring a consultant to conduct a preservation assessment and train museum staff on conservation measures. The program also would acquire preservation supplies.

         SUNO's Norma Wolff Collection of African art comprises 96 cultural objects — including masks, jewelry, instruments and weapons — from West and Central Africa.
