The North Texas Association for Art Conservation is very happy to be teaming up once again with the Nasher Sculpture Center. This time to host a sizzling lecture by Maria Sheets entitled To Hell and Back: Fire Recovery Project at the Museum of Biblical Art.
In 2006 Ms. Sheets was there when the Dallas Fire Department was pouring tons of water on the burning Museum of Biblical Art. And she was there when the museum re-opened their doors in 2010. Between those two dates, she was the art conservator on staff, responsible for the over whelming task of evaluating and treating the museum's badly damaged collection.
At this lecture, Ms. Sheets will be discussing her insights on disaster recovery and touching on topics such as: Prioritizing, Temporary Storage, Public Relations, Conservation in a temporary conservation lab, Museum construction, and of course developing a new Emergency Disaster Plan.
This event is free and open to the public, so spread the word, bring a friend. Please RSVP to the lecture by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
