NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Museum Studies Master’s Program at Southern University at New Orleans has received a $5,234 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

SUNO, in a news release Wednesday, said that the grant is for development of a long-term plan to preserve the University’s Norma Wolff Collection of African Art.

The Museum Studies Program is working on a plan that would involve hiring a consultant to conduct a preservation assessment and train museum staff on conservation measures. The program also would acquire preservation supplies.

SUNO’s Norma Wolff Collection of African art comprises 96 cultural objects - including masks, jewelry, instruments and weapons - from West and Central Africa.
