BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The Housatonic Museum of Art at Bridgeport's Housatonic Community College was awarded a $20,356 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under its 2015 Museums for America program.
The Bridgeport facility, located on the college's campus, 900 Lafayette Blvd., specializes in art from the last three centuries.
The grant will fund an independent contractor to design, supply and install custom, modern-day storage systems that improve organization and maximize storage capacity for the museum's collection of paintings, sculptures, textiles and other objects.
The museum’s benefactor, IMLS, is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums.
