Cleaning out the attic : evaluating and refining the Heritage textile collection at Historic Waco Foundation.
This graduate project was completed at Historic Waco Foundation in Waco, TX. The project consisted of the examination and evaluation of the women’s textiles in HWF’s Heritage Collection on an item-level basis. Objects were evaluated based on criteria in HWF’s Collections Management Policy. This evaluation primarily considered whether each object fit within HWF’s collecting scope and whether or not it was exhibitable. Recommendations for each item were given to the Collections Manager for presentation to the Collections Management Committee.
