Johnson
Museum
Accreditation
Report
 1999
Director
Philip
Johnson
Museum
Accreditation
Report



 In
1983
the
Visiting
Committee
noted
four
areas
requiring
attention:
conservation;
 improvements
needed
in
the
storage
areas;
upgrading
of
the
registrar's
files;
and
 the
need
for
additional
fundraising
to
insure
the
budgets
for
care
of
the
collections
 and
programs.
These
areas
have
been
vigorously
addressed
and
largely
corrected
in
 the
interim.
Other
committee
concerns
involved
the
"hectic
pace"
at
which
the
 Museum
operates,
the
need
for
reinstalling
some
of
the
exhibition
areas,
inadequate
 space
in
storage
and
other
support
areas,
limited
physical
facilities
for
programs,
 and
the
possibility
of
intruders
hiding
within
the
complex
at
closing
time.
These
 areas,
too,
have
been
addressed
and
corrected
with
two
exceptions.
The
continuing
 pace
of
exhibitions
remains
fairly
hectic
although
there
seems
to
be
adequate
staff
 to
cover
all
of
these
activities.
Storage
and
support
facilities
(work
spaces,
offices,
 etc.)
remain
in
short
supply
but,
as
stated
earlier,
are
part
of
the
active
 consideration
in
the
new
long
range
plans
and
capital
fund
financing.
