Beth Crawford, senior associate and restoration project lead from Crawford & Stearns was awarded an Arts & Crafts Research Fund grant.
The goal of this limited interior wall finish documentation project is to identify currently unknown finishes and conditions which were covered over by late twentieth century materials (paint, wallpaper, etc.). The Arts & Crafts Research Fund was established several years ago by Bruce Johnson, the director of the National Arts & Crafts Conference, with the goal of providing financial assistance to researchers and writers involved in the Arts & Crafts movement. Each year the ACRF sponsors a Silent Auction at the National Arts & Crafts Conference to raise money, which is distributed during the following year. Research grants typically range between $2000-$4000.
