Case Studies:  Conservation/Innovations for Museum Exhibits
Request for Slides

The International Institute for Conservation--Canadian Group (IIC-CG) is
holding its 21st Annual Conference in Calgary, Alberta, from May 24th to
May 28th, 1995. A two day training workshop precedes the conference
session. The focus of the workshop is to feature traditional and
avant-garde examples of balancing museum exhibits with collection
preservation. The workshop is planned as a series of lectures and
"hands-on" demonstrations which provide the participants with
opportunity to explore new methods, materials and systems in the areas
of mounting, lighting, case design and security.

During one of the workshop sessions there will be a slide presentation
showing examples of exhibit design techniques that have a positive
impact on artifact, art and specimen conservation. To maximize the
collaborative venture of the workshops, we are seeking slides from
exhibit and conservation personnel who have developed and employed high
and low tech ideas for mounts, supports, back drops, lighting and
security systems, etc. that demonstrate ingenuity of design and skill in
the use of materials.

We would be pleased to receive your contribution(s) to this endeavour
and invite you to share your exhibit ideas with a knowledgeable and
appreciative international audience. The slide show offers an
opportunity to highlight the best of your past and present work.
