IMA Expands Acceptable Temperature and Humidity Guidelines


INDIANAPOLIS, IN.- The Indianapolis Museum of Art recently expanded the temperature and relative humidity ranges allowed in most of its museum galleries and art storage spaces in order to reduce the energy usage of the museum while continuing rigorous stewardship of the art objects in its care. This move will continue the process of greening the IMA, which began in 2005 and has resulted in significant energy savings and reduced environmental impact. The IMA has instituted these new standards and has notified all current and future lenders of this change. “The IMA is pleased to take a leadership role in introducing these new standards for museum climate control, using the latest scientific research to find new ways for museums to decrease energy consumption,” said Dr. Maxwell L. Anderson, The Melvin & Bren Simon Director and CEO of the IMA
