MJ Davis, paper conservator and preventive conservation specialist. Proper display and exhibit materials can add years to the “life” of an artwork, whereas inappropriate handling, overexposure to light and extremes in temperature will adversely affect the long-term preservation of family heirlooms. This presentation will help you better understand what you can do to mitigate possible damage and make your home the best location for your collections until they are passed on to others or donated to the museum or cultural institution of your choice.
