Workshop on architectural records

From: Helen Corr <ccaha>
Date: Wednesday, August 14, 1996
The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts, The Heinz
Architectural Center, and the Conservation Department of the
Carnegie Museum of Art are co-sponsoring a one day architectural
records workshop, "Have You Got the Blues?  Architectural Records:
Their Identification, Management, Storage, and Treatment," in
Pittsburgh, PA on Friday, October 4, 1996.  The workshop will be
held at the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater, 4400 Forbes Avenue,
Pittsburgh, PA.  A registration fee of $75.00 includes a box lunch
and materials.  Enrollment will be limited to thirty participants.
The workshop is partially funded by the National Endowment for the
Humanities, The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, and the
Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation.

The workshop is intended for architectural historians, architects,
librarians, archivists, museum curators, collections care managers,
conservators, and technicians who have architectural records or
other oversized paper-based materials in their care or collections.

The speakers will address the problems of caring for the diverse
materials of an architectural records collection.  The workshop will
help participants identify different original and reproductive
processes; consider options for organization, cataloging, access,
and reformatting of architectural records; recognize storage
problems and options; and learn basic collections care methods and
remedial treatments that can be safely accomplished in-house.  The
workshop will include a tour of the storage facilities of The Heinz
Architectural Center at the Carnegie Museum of Art and
demonstrations of appropriate handling techniques and repairs of
architectural drawings and reproductions.

Speakers:  Lois Price, Conservator of Library Collections at the
H.I. DuPont Winterthur Museum; Dennis McFadden, Curator of
Architecture, The Heinz Architectural Center, the Carnegie Museum of
Art; and Joan Irving, Conservator, Conservation Center for Art and
Historic Artifacts.

Registration deadline: Friday, September 20, 1996.
