9:15 am - 4:30 pm        Workshop


Cosponsored by:
Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts

Exhibitions are integral to the mission of museums, historic houses,
historical societies, and to archives and libraries as these
institutions strive to showcase their collections. Quality exhibits
reflect the good stewardship activities that take place behind the
scenes in cultural institutions and allow organizations to interpret
their collections to the public.

While exhibitions are essential in assisting institutions in
fulfilling their missions, they can also be time consuming,
expensive, and potentially damaging to artifacts.  This workshop is
designed to assist institutions in coordinating the many activities
that are part of planning small to medium sized exhibitions.

Local exhibit designers, curators, and conservators will discuss
exhibit development, the process of working with a designer, and
preservation considerations when mounting exhibitions. Concepts will
be illustrated through case studies that range from small case
exhibits to art installations and historic interiors.
