Conservation chat on America Online

From: Lisa Mibach <perygrine>
Date: Saturday, October 8, 1994
THE VIRTUAL MUSEUM is a topic of interest to museum-goers, artists,
educators, and all those people interested in new technologies. "Virtual
Museum" is almost becoming a buzzword. What does it mean now and in the
future?  How is technology being effectively used to create a dialogue
about museum objects and collections?  Steve Dietz, the Project Director
of New Media Initiatives at the National Museum of American Art, will
host this series.

On Monday, October 3, Dr. Elizabeth Broun, Director of the National
Museum of American Art, will inaugurate Smithsonian Online's Chat area
and THE VIRTUAL MUSEUM lecture series.  See the transcript of her
presentation to the Smithsonian's Commission on the Future in "Online
Readings" or "Smithsonian Library and Archive" for background

CONSERVATION TOPICS will let you speak with professional conservators,
who can provide basic information about the care of objects.  Virtually
everybody collects something but not everybody knows what to do if a
painting or a vintage piece of clothing is damaged.  If you are
knowledgeable enough to identify the program, you may not have the
skills to attend to it. Information on how to select a conservator will
also be presented.  Joan Stahl, Coordinator Image Collections at the
National Museum of American Art, will host this series.

On Monday, October 10, at 9 pm  Catherine Maynor and Lisa Mibach will be
our guest conservators and will be available to offer general
suggestions for the care and treatment of objects and tips on selecting
a conservator.  Since 1986, Ms. Maynor has been a paper conservator at
the National Museum of American Art.  She is a graduate of the
Cooperstown Graduate Program in Art Conservation (now the Buffalo Art
Conservation Program).  Ms. Mibach heads Mibach and Associates, a
conservation consulting firm in Ohio.

Please join us for this groundbreaking event on Monday, October 10, at 9
pm (keyword: Smithsonian), go to Smithsonian Hall Now Open, go to Enter
Smithsonian Hall.
