Conference: Where Artifact Meets Exhibition: Preservation and Exhibit Design

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

With today's technology, exhibits are more dynamic, interactive, and sophisticated than ever. However, scientific findings from conservation laboratories frequently indicate the strain exhibition can place on objects. But there is good news: with the right technology and planning, a well-designed exhibit can showcase objects beautifully and safely.
