Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Fall of 2017 was one of the most active and dangerous seasons in U.S. Hurricane history. As of this writing, two of the nation's largest cities and most populous states have been affected by storms of record-breaking size and wind strength. This panel brings together conservators from Houston, Texas and Miami, Florida to discuss some of the solutions adopted by institutions, collections, and private conservation studios to prepare for hurricanes Harvey and Irma. We will discuss what worked and what did not, what lessons were learned, and how conservators can respond to incorrect advice that is provided by non-conservators and disseminated widely in media reports. As of this date the panel will consist of: Rosa Lowinger (Moderator) Principal and Chief Conservator, RLA Conservation, Inc. Miami and Los Angeles. Steve Pine (Presenter) Senior Conservator for Decorative Arts, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Rustin Levenson (Presenter) President and Chief Conservator, ArtCare, Inc. Miami, New York, Los Angeles Lauren Hall (Presenter) Conservator, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens One more participant from Houston or another Gulf Coast locale
