16300522_10208344104060550_3915240114136132916_oOn April 11, 2017, Melissa hosted an outreach event for artists in the Boston area called, “Creating Art to Last: A Conversation with Art Conservators.” The event was sponsored by Golden Artist Colors and Arts at the Armory. Four conservators of varying specialties volunteered to be on a panel to discuss art materials, best practices, and preventive care for artwork. Melissa collaborated with other conservators to compile a resource sheet specifically for artists, which is available here. If you are interested in learning more about the event, Melissa wrote a blog for VoCA describing the event and you can also watch a recording of the event below:
