Focus on Collections Care Workshop Series
Tucson, Arizona

The three-day Focus on Collections Care workshop series will be held
in Tucson, Arizona at the Hotel Arizona in downtown Tucson.  This
series is presented by San Diego-based Balboa Art Conservation
Center (BACC) and locally hosted by the Arizona State Museum.  The
workshops are designed to provide an intensive training experience
with a programmatic approach.  The series curriculum focuses on care
of collections, policies and procedures and planning and management.
Nine workshops will be offered during this series to allow
participants to select the workshop(s) appropriate to their specific
needs and experience level.  Participants may select up to three
workshops (one per day).

The workshop series is directed towards persons involved in
collections care management, institutional development and policy
making, and exhibition development and installations.  Students in
degree-related programs are also encouraged to attend.

Cost varies depending on number of workshop taken.
Professional rate: $100 to $250
Student rate: $50 to $125

Please note individuals from qualifying institutions may also apply
for stipend assistance.

Each workshop will take place from 9am to 4pm.  Registration
deadline is March 16, 2007.  Focus on Collections Care is made
possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities,
a federal agency.   Additional support was provided by the Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation.  BACC is a nonprofit regional conservation center
devoted to the preservation of material culture in the areas of art
and history.
