Preserving Family Treasures
All of us have family treasures that we have inherited or collected over the years. In this presentation by Dennos Museum Director Craig Hadley, you will learn how museum professionals take care of a wide range of artworks and objects, from sculptures and paintings to photographs and precious news clippings. We will discuss the different ways in which objects deteriorate, tips for mitigating loss, and what you can do to protect your precious belongings. Bring your questions!
