This presentation will describe the process of expanding the Amon Carter Museum of American Art cold and cool storage photography vaults to accommodate large format photographs in the current collection and future acquisitions. The whole endeavor, from visionary plans made in the past when the vaults were first constructed, to the final phase of relocating the collections in the new space, will be discussed, emphasizing the decision-making steps and team effort which were critical for the success of the project. It is the aim of this presentation to share the experience of the ACMAA with colleagues who are involved (or may be involved in the future) in the planning and construction of cold and cool storage vaults for photographic collections.
