Preserving Cultural Heritage in the Upper Midwest

The Midwest Art Conservation Center (MACC) provides preservation education and support to cultural heritage organizations located throughout the United States, with a particular focus on the Midwest region. Since 1993, National Endowment for the Humanities funding has bolstered these efforts, ensuring that the Midwest’s cultural heritage is preserved for future generations. As part of the NEH’s regional field service program, MACC provides preservation assistance and planning to museums, historical organizations, libraries, archives, and other cultural institutions. Because the Upper Midwest has a high density of Native American tribes, MACC takes a special interest in preserving the cultural heritage of indigenous peoples by working directly with tribal representatives.
