Outdoor Metal Sculpture Seminar
New York Conservation Foundation

Week 1 in New York City
August 10-15, 2009

Week 2 at Princeton University
August 17-21, 2009

During August 10-21, 2009 the New York Conservation Foundation
(NYCF) <URL:> will again convene an introductory
seminar on the conservation of outdoor metal sculpture.

Our seminar covers outdoor sculpture in copper, bronze, iron, steel,
aluminum, including painted metals. Sculpture conservator John Scott
leads together with expert colleagues. The seminar comprises two
one-week modules, and will be conducted in English.

During six days August 10-15, 2009 we will complete five morning
outdoor field examination tours, and five afternoons of indoor
lecture-discussions, and one full day of hands-on outdoor field
exercise. Each registrant must prepare in advance, bring to the
seminar, and present in the seminar a short relevant powerpoint
presentation, which will then be archived with NYCF for future
study.  Completion of this first seminar week is required for
participation in the second week field exercise.

During five days August 17-21, 2009 we will complete five days of
hands-on field exercises in conservation of outdoor sculptures. The
exercises comprise practical examination, documentation, planning,
mobilization and treatment, and reporting. Logistics require us to
limit the number of registrants for this second week.

Lunch is provided on every seminar day during both weeks. Equipment,
supplies, and any necessary round trip transportation outside NYC
are provided during the field exercises.

Registration for 2009 is unchanged from 2008 at USD $1250 per week.
Conservation students, interns and apprentices may apply to NYCF for
partial subsidy. All participants are separately responsible for
their own travel, room, board and insurances. See 2009 announcement
