Sixty Plus Lecture: Art Conservation and Preserving Your Family Heritage

Monday, January 8, 2018 - 13:00

Anisha Gupta, Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in Paper Conservation, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisc

Art conservation is the preservation of cultural heritage from the ravages of time, the threats of pollution and the damage from natural disasters. Working in museums and other cultural institutions, as well as research labs and private practice, conservators combine unique skills gained through on-going study. Anish will give a brief overview of conservation and walk through a few case studies. She will also provide information on how to better preserve your own family heritage.

Anish Gupta graduated from the University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation with a major specialty in works of art on paper and a minor in photographic materials. In the Museums she works in the paper conservation lab to conserve a collection of almost 100,000 works.
