Preservation Assessment: Tweed Museum Works on Paper
The art works on paper in the Sax Brothers Collection Study Room at the Tweed Museum of Art were assessed by conservator, Sherelyn Ogden, who provided recommendations for preferred methods of paper preservation. A broad report was prepared that presents the long-range plan for implementing improvements to the preservation requirements of paper artworks at the Museum. A short-term plan for organizing the collection by size and re-housing the smaller works on paper has been implemented.
