New York City and Princeton, New Jersey, USA

"The Bronze Seminar" integrates diverse conditions, technical
practices, aesthetic systems, and basic logistics and
administration, for conserving outdoor bronze sculpture. Expert
lectures, participant presentations and group discussions help place
bronze monuments and their care in contexts of studio and foundry
practice, environmental science, aesthetics and civilization. Field
exercises include connoisseurship tours of outdoor monuments, and
hands-on conservation and maintenance of outdoor bronzes.

This seminar addresses closely related aims:

    *   Introduce outdoor bronze sculpture caretakers and their
        supervisors to current knowledge, theory and methods,
        oriented to the ethics and practices of modern conservation.

    *   Share access to useful resources  in the care of outdoor
        bronze sculpture, including experts, literature, technology
        and supply.

Since 1994, about 100 conservators, conservation students, curators,
foundry crafts people, art handlers and artists from the America and
Europe have participated in this annual seminar.
