"The Modular Cleaning Program: A Systemic Approach to Cleaning
March 21-24, 2008

Lectures, demonstrations, and lab:
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday
9 am - 5 pm

The Modular Cleaning Program (MCP) is a systemic approach to
cleaning artworks and has been developed to assist conservators in
cleaning with solvents, solvent gels, and water-borne systems.. The
MCP consists of a series of concentrated stock solutions and a
computer database. The database assists the conservator in combining
the stock solutions and provides information about the solutions and
their components. The database also allows the conservator to
specify new cleaning solutions and assists him/her in mixing them.
The workshop will introduce the participating conservator to the
cleaning theories behind the MCP and the use of the MCP database and
concentrates. Each participant will leave with a set of the aqueous
concentrated stock solutions and, for those not traveling by air, a
set of the stock solvent gels.
