Hello PACCIN Members,

If you’re in the NYC area and you’re interested in collections management, object care and display or project management and art-related quotes and estimating, you may be interested in a class I took at NYU SCPS taught by a colleague of mine.

I highly recommend it as I found it to be very beneficial.

Chuck Agro: “Object Care and Display for Collections Managers”. Course number ARTP1-CE8151.

It’s a 10-week course, beginning October 4th, held at Manhattan Village Academy mere blocks from the Flatiron Building.

Here's the course description:

“This in-depth course covers art and artifact handling and display techniques for a variety of objects including paintings, sculptures, works on paper, furniture, textiles, new media, and ethnographic objects. Discuss the challenges of contemporary art, materials, large-scale work, and installations. Topics include environmental concerns and monitoring, archival materials, lighting, cases, transportation, packing, and shipping, project management and estimating for quotes.”
