Exploring the Conservation of Folk Art

04:00 pm - 01/26/2017

@ Lunder Conservation Center

Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery, 8th and F Streets, NW
Washington DC  20001



Shelburne Museum Objects Conservator, Nancie Ravenel, will present a lecture investigating the conservation of American folk art. Nancie will examine how historical context, provenance, and museum display traditions influence conservation treatment decisions for folk art in Shelburne Museum's collection. The discussion will be illustrated with examples of conservation treatment undertaken on works by self-taught artists Molly Nye Tobey (1893-1984), J.O.J. Frost (1852-1928), Edgar Decker Kirk (1891-1956), and A. Elmer Crowell (1862-1952) in Shelburne Museum’s collection, and will be considered in relation to works in SAAM’s collection.

This program is free and no registration is required.
