and methods used for conserving OPS. It is hoped that the meeting
will provide an opportunity for dialogue both within the
conservation community, and with others, such as the paint industry,
fabricators, curators and artists' estate, foundations and studios.
The Kroller-Muller Museum has a large collection of outdoor
sculptures with more than 150 works exhibited in its sculpture
garden, and as such will provide the perfect setting for the
meeting. There will be an opportunity to view the collection,
including works under discussion at the meeting.
