Housing Basics


Event details

MDT (1:00pm ET)

The Regional Heritage Stewardship Program is an initiative of the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Its Intermountain West regional program is conducted in partnership with the Utah Division of Arts & Museums’ Office of Museum Services and Utah Humanities.


This webinar guides you through the process of understanding housing materials marketed as “archival” or “conservation-grade.” Additional recommendations will also be shared for choosing appropriate housing constructions for artifacts with particular conservation concerns, with a peek at some examples.
