Do you have a lot of family artifacts? Do you worry you’re not taking care of them properly? Should you polish the silver menorah, or not? Where is the best place to store Aunt Ruth’s beautiful needlework? What would you ask an art conservator if you had twenty minutes with them? Caroline Kunioka, Curator at Nevada State Museum, will introduce you to the ten agents of deterioration, let you see the mindset that conservators have about preservation of family heirlooms, and attempt to give you solid practical advice and guidelines to get you started on preserving, and not just living with, your family heirlooms
