Exhibitions and Case Design: Integrating Preservation in Planning
Chemical Heritage Foundation
315 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106-2702

9:15am - 5:30 pm

Cosponsored and hosted by the Chemical Heritage Foundation

Registration Deadline: Wednesday, November 21, 2007

Viewers peering into exhibit cases see displayed artifacts and
objects but do not witness the long planning and installation
process that culminates in the finished exhibit. This program will
give your institution tools to ensure that your visitors see safely
mounted objects in a secure, controlled environment.  Presenters,
who include exhibit designers, conservators, and fabricators, will
discuss exhibit development, best practices for collections care of
objects on display, and other preservation considerations when
mounting exhibitions in cases.  Concepts presented will be
applicable to a variety of small and mid-size institutions.

The inclusion of preventive conservation combines both preservation
and aesthetic considerations in the exhibit planning process.  The
selection of appropriate objects for exhibition, choosing safe
exhibit materials and isolation barriers, controlling pollutants,
creating optimal environmental conditions, and monitoring and
maintaining exhibits after installation will be defined and
discussed.  Case studies will demonstrate the concepts presented and
a speakers panel will address additional audience questions.

This program is intended for curators, librarians, archivists,
collection managers, exhibition designers, preparators,
conservators, and other staff who are involved in exhibition design
and installation in cultural institutions.
