The North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) has received a $149,500 matching grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to complete a multidisciplinary, 10-phase conservation project on a work of art that has been in the Museum’s collection for almost six decades: the composite marble Statue of Bacchus.
