Many institutions deal with common outdoor collection types like sculptures and fountains. But what about objects like architectural elements, farm implements, and transportation related items? In this webinar we will bring together conservators from different regions and climates, specifically the Northeast, West Coast, and the South, to discuss how institutions manage all of these types of outdoor collection objects ranging from the common to the more unusual.
Topics to be covered include:
Monitoring on Condition
Approaches to Creating a Maintenance Plan
Indoor vs. Outdoor Storage Locations
Climate Differences: Marine vs. Desert vs. Humid vs. Cold vs. Tropic
