Works on Paper Comes to the Coolidge Historic Site

April 18, 2016

Carolyn Frisa, Head Conservator and Owner of Works on Paper presented her information-filled talk, Preserving Family Archives at the recent Open House at the Coolidge Museum and Education Center. She showed a slide series of letters, photos, paintings, and other works on paper that had been damaged by heat, moisture, neglect and contact with acid producing surfaces. This raised our awareness of how to store and handle these delicate items. Carolyn described the process how these items were restored and preserved by careful cleaning, remounting and storage. Audience members had the opportunity to ask questions about specific items they had brought with them. This talk will be available on local access TV stations. For further information about Works on Paper, see www.works-on-paper.net. The Coolidge Foundation thanks Carolyn for sharing her expertise with us!

Diane Kemble, Education Director
