Most people register for the first week, a mix of lectures, field
exercises and monument condition survey tours in New York City. This
summer we will have lectures from outdoor bronze corrosion
researcher and conservator Helena Strandberg, PhD, art historian and
conservator John Scott, MA, MA-CAS, and art historian sculpture
experts Andrew Butterfield, PhD and Joan Pachner PhD. Participants
can bring short slide talks about condition and care of outdoor
bronze sculpture in their home areas.

Last summer's first week participants included an arts administrator
for the City of Philadelphia, an artisan newly hired to lead the
monuments maintenance staff at NYC's Central Park, an Australian
regional center sculpture conservator, a Swiss conservator and
university professor, a German objects conservator, and a chemist
interested in conservation. Four gave short talks on outdoor
sculpture "back home," and we all participated freely in relaxed
discussions surrounding the seminar lectures, field tours and
exercises. Participants agreed their time and funds were very well
and enjoyably spent. Seminar second week registrants accompany John
Scott daily for field exercises maintaining outdoor bronzes. A
vigorous good time,
