Bruce Presents: Crashes, Cracks, and Other Catastrophes to Avoid:  Preventive Conservation Tips for Collectors

Collectible art and objects seem to always be under siege.  From light, humidity, and temperature, to our own carelessness and clumsiness, some of our most valued possessions face threats of damage each day.  Hopefully, your art insurance policy covers the damage in the event of a loss; however, many of the sources of danger to our collections are controllable, and others are at least predictable. Conservators are usually called in when something has gone wrong to treat the effects of these threats, yet they are also a valuable resource for preventative care.  

Join our panel of collections care specialists who will share ways to mitigate the risk to your cultural heritage objects, and learn about who you can turn to if the damage has already been done.​

Admission to the webinar on May 6 is free for Museum members and $20 for non-members; students receive a 20% discount. To register, visit the Reservations page at brucemuseum.org or call 203-869-0376, ext. 311.

Support for these programs featuring thought leaders in art and science is generously provided by Berkley One, a Berkley Company, Connecticut Office of the Arts, and Northern Trust.
