NEW YORK, NY.- In an effort to assist the many treasured but vulnerable museums and non-profit arts and historical institutions around the country during this difficult time, Eli Wilner & Company will award a non-profit institution with one fully-funded replica frame grant. Submissions for the grant will be accepted through August 30, 2020. The recipient institution will be announced later this fall.

Similar to Wilner’s fully funded frame restoration grant project from this past Spring, the winning project will be selected by an independent group of prominent jurors.

Due to the fact that many curatorial and conservation staff do not have physical access to their collections at this time, a very simple application process has been established. Eligible projects include important historical paintings and drawings. Replication of decorative mirrors or looking glasses that have been lost, but are well documented, will also be considered.

Here is the submission criteria:

● Entries should be emailed to: info@eliwilner.com

● Subject line of the email should read: [Name of Institution] Replica Frame grant application

● One image of the painting to be reframed

● Basic catalog information.

● A brief description (3-4 sentences) of why the artwork is historically and culturally significant to your institution.

● Optional: additional images such as documentation of an original frame that has been lost, or evidence of the artist’s framing preferences.

● Please include basic contact information.

After winning the grant, the recipient will receive a formal proposal in order to finalize their replica frame choice via digital mockups and any additional historical research materials. They will also be provided with a measuring form and instructions so that no artwork needs to be transported to Wilner’s NYC studio. During the making of the frame, all aspects of the process will be documented. The grant will include shipping of the completed empty frame to the awarded institution. Eli Wilner & Company will issue a press release about the project, following approval from the institution.

While only one institution will be awarded a fully-funded replica frame grant at this time, all entries will be considered for Wilner's ongoing matching funds for museums program.

Eli Wilner & Company hopes to support as many institutions as possible as they continue their mission to preserve our shared cultural heritage. Eli Wilner & Company has over 10,000 projects featured in both private and public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Guggenheim, among others. The US White House currently displays 28 Eli Wilner & Co. frames. In 2019, Wilner was honored by the Historic Charleston Foundation with the Samuel Gaillard Stoney Conservation Craftsmanship Award for his company’s work in historic picture frame conservation.
