Virtual Camp: Take Care to Curate
Provider: Wesley Clarke, Collections Manager & Archaeologist – The Castle
During the centennial, displays of historical artifacts drew large crowds. Many of these artifacts were a hundred years old, but sometimes much older. How do you guarantee objects last so long? The answer is curation! Curation is an important “behind-the-scenes” activity at museums, and is essential for preserving the artifacts of history. This session will explore the meaning and activities of curation, observe how curators helped assure the “Star-Spangled Banner” lasts another 250 years, and provide a hands-on experience of proper curation methods.
