CONSERVATION: Artifact, Art & Architecture Conference
Drury University, Pool Art Center, Room 101
940 N. Clay Street, Springfield, MO 65802
Tuesday, March 13, 2012
The conservation of material objects and the built environment is of fundamental consequence to our understanding of the past as we perceive it today as well as for future generations that will look back in time with a different perspective. The conference addresses conservation practices as applied to natural and man-made objects – from bones to books to buildings. It also looks at specific ways in which the conservation process and preserved objects can be used as pedagogical tools.
This conference is open to students, members of the community, and professionals. Whether you are already working in the field, are interested in learning about conservation as a possible career, or are just curious and want to learn more, we invite you to participate in this special Drury conference.
Hope to see you there!
