Protecting Collections: Creative Solutions on a Shoestring Budget Workshop

Monday, June 12, 2017

9am-3pm (CST)

At Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science

411 S.E. Riverside Drive, Evansville, IN

SICCA is partnering with the Indiana Historical Society's Local History Services to provide you an informative workshop in 2017.

Do you strive to follow museum collection best practices but find yourself constrained by a tight budget? We'll provide some tips and tricks on how to MacGyver your museum by implementing some strategies for protecting collection items on display and in storage.  We will mix together a bit of presentation with some hands-on activities that build skills to take back to your collections. Learn both long-term solutions as well as some mid-range ideas to protect your collection while you work to raise money and awareness for more permanent best practices. Collections care is always a work in progress.

Catered lunch option through Jason's Deli maybe available depending on number of participants. Attendees will be responsible for paying their portion of lunch. More information about lunch will be communicated at a later time.
