The Care and Handling of Treasures at Home
* * * This program will be held in Meeting Room 1 at Akron-Summit County Public Library, Main Library, located near the High Street Entrance * * *
Heirlooms such as photographs, film and art objects can pass on our families’ stories for generations to come—but only if they’re carefully preserved.
Join Holly Witchey, Director of Education & Outreach for ICA, the Intermuseum Conservation Association, for an evening of discussion on how to handle, care for, and eventually pass on your family treasures.
Bring a few small art objects and photographs from your collection to exhibit in a Pop Up Museum of Family Treasures. The Art Library Program Coordinator will help you document and share the stories behind these objects from one generation to the next.
Free and open to all. Register online using the link / button below.
