Preserving Your Heirlooms
Lori spent 15 years as a museum coordinator and she’ll be bringing her expertise to discuss what to do with your family heirlooms. This talk will cover the differences between curators, conservators, and appraisers, and then go over what causes objects to deteriorate and how that can be mitigated both in a museum setting and in a home setting.
