Forum for the Conservation and Restoration of Stained-Glass Windows
New York
1-3 June 2009

The next Forum for the Conservation and Restoration of Stained-Glass
Windows will take place in New York City from 1-3 June 2009. The
Forum is being held under the auspices of the American Corpus
Vitrearum and the International Committee of the Corpus Vitrearum
for the Conservation of Stained Glass.

The three-day conference will consist of two full days of oral
presentations and poster sessions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art,
one of the preeminent cultural institutions in the world. Evening
receptions will be held at The Cloisters and in the newly renovated
Engelhard Courtyard, which will allow participants to view some of
the Museum's extensive holdings of European and American stained
glass. The third day of the conference will be spent viewing stained
glass in situ in Manhattan churches in the company of local experts.
The day and the conference will end with a reception at the National
Arts Club, a landmarked 19th century building with stained glass by
John LaFarge and John MacDonald. The Forum will be preceded by a
"Sunday at the Met" event--an afternoon of public keynote lectures
devoted to general themes connected to the Forum.

The Forum is open to all interested stained glass professionals,
including conservators, conservation scientists, architects,
cultural heritage managers, art historians, students, etc. The venue
is intended to provide an unprecedented opportunity for
professionals from Europe and North America to meet and share their
expertise and experience.

The theme of the Forum will be "The Art of Collaboration:
Stained-Glass Conservation in the Twenty-First Century". Papers will
be delivered in English, French and German with simultaneous
translation. Texts of the oral presentations and summaries of the
poster presentations will be published by Brepols Publishers in
cooperation with the American Corpus Vitrearum. Preprints will be
available at the Forum and afterwards will be sold by Brepols.

A preliminary list of presentations and other information about the
conference is available at <URL:>

This site will be updated as more information becomes available.
