Upcoming Workshop and Survey: Methods and Materials- DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities

From Ron Humbertson, Art Collections Registrar, DC COMMISSION ON THE ARTS AND HUMANITIES:

Hello, Artists!

As a previous applicant to the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Art Bank and Public Art programs, I am reaching out to inform you of an upcoming workshop and pre-survey to help us develop content for the event. In collaboration with the Washington Conservation Guild, we are excited to present a workshop called Methods and Materials. The workshop will focus on art and conservation practices to provide artists with resources and information on how to make artwork more sustainable. Each panelist will discuss conservation and archival methods concerning their expertise in painting, photography, works on paper, and sculpture indoors and out. At the end of the discussion, the panel of professional conservators will take participants’ questions to help support your practice.

If you have a moment to take the survey, please let us know about your current practice and questions on archival materials. Response from this survey will help the panelists address topics through their discussion to best support our community. Please provide any responses by Friday, June 17. To participate, please go to the following link and complete the short google survey:

Your thoughts and participation are greatly appreciated! I look forward to hearing from you, and we hope to see you on Wednesday, July 20, from 12 – 1:30 PM. An email with further details and a sign-up for the workshop will be sent to our general contact list closer to the event date.

I will be out of the office from June 9 – 15. If you have any questions regarding the event or survey during this time, I will happily answer them upon my return.

Thank you,


Ron Humbertson, Art Collections Registrar
