Last weekend, the IU Preservation Department welcomed the MRCG Symposium 2012 attendees for a tour of our labs. This year’s symposium was held in Bloomington on the IU campus. Staff from the IU Art Museum, Mathers Museum, Libraries Preservation and Lilly Library all helped with the organization and hosting.
The weekend began with a lively reception at Lilly Library provided by kind support from Friends of Lilly Library, with a “Treasures of the Lilly” talk by Jim Canary (Special Collections Conservator, Lilly Library).
Saturday’s schedule included nine speakers and tours of the IU Art Museum conservation lab and collections storage (for more information on the individual speakers and subjects, please visit the MRCG website).
