In June, a professional paper conservator spent two days examining the layout of the gallery as well as the site’s policies, procedures and environmental conditions.</p><p>An initial report points to issues in lighting, shelving and storage that could harm artwork over time.</p> Wed, 04 Sep 2013 16:58:24 +0000 Michael Lynch 15733 at http://wesa.fm
