Regional Heritage Stewardship Program
Intermountain West Project 

Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Regional Heritage Stewardship Program (RHSP) is an initiative of the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) that brings vital preservation services to regions of the country with limited access to conservators and preservation expertise. Conducted in partnership with Utah field services providers, the Utah Division of Arts & Museums’ Office of Museum Services (UA&M) and Utah Humanities (UH), the 2019-2020 RHSP Intermountain West project will bring in-person workshops, webinars, and preservation needs assessments to collecting institutions in under-served parts of Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico, while UA&M and UH seek to provide basic collections care services to rural Utah, expand the curriculum used in-state, and foster local networking and communities of practice.

Dyani Feige, Director of Preservation Services, CCAHA, will present Spring 2019 programming in St. George, UT.
