Conservation: Caring for Your Treasures

August, 23, 2015.
Beverly Perkins, of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, has written an informative article about the steps involved in basic preservation of your family treasures
and the basics of museum conservation efforts.

"Let’s say you find a tear in the painting, a stain on the quilt, or mold on the photograph. What should you do? The best course of action is to contact a conservator,* most of whom are happy to talk to you about your object and its problems. They will often ask you to photograph the object and its damage, and e-mail the photos with a brief description. This should be sufficient information for the conservator to recommend treatment and estimate costs."
