Historic Artists' Homes and Studios program


Roger Brown Study Collection is a member of the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studio Program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation is focused on identifying and helping selected American art-related historic sites to preserve, document and interpret their collections and buildings. As a member of HAHS the RBSC is a member of the NTHP’s Associate Sites program, a national network of historic places grouped by theme and region, to encourage peer collaboration and professional development.

Associationwith the HAHS program reinforced the RBSC’s significance through a partnership with the nation’s primary preservation organization. Representing a late 20th century artist, the RBSC is the only site in the program that integrally involves students in all aspects of site management and collection organization, care, and interpretation. The RBSC has received two grants from the HAHS program:

  • In 2001 the RBSC received full funding to retain consultants to conduct a comprehensive documentation, packing, moving, storage, and reinstallation plan, to prepare for an eventual the renovation project.
  • In 2005 the RBSC received a grant to undertake major organization and re-housing of RBSC archival materials.
