Angel Project Comes to Agua Caliente Cultural Museum

10/16/2012 05:35PM ● Published by Denise Brown

Washington Conservation Guild, a non-profit organization of conservation professionals will volunteer a day of service to the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum. Under their Angel Projects, WCG will consult with the museum staff. They will be trading knowledge about current conservation protocols.  The cultural museum will use selected items from their collections as case studies.

Angel Projects dates back to the late 1980s, when the parent group of WCG, the American Institute for Conservation, started using the group at locations near their annual meetings.  Over the years Angel Projects has aided in rehousing collections for storage upgrades, preserving daguerreotypes and tintypes.  Angel Project has visited many places such as museums and historic homes.  They have also traveled to other organizations that have a need for conservations consultation, assistance in rehousing specific collection, and basic collections care.

The members will be attending the Western Associations of Art Conservation Meeting in Palms Springs, starting on October 22.

For more information about this project, contact Dawn Wellman, Curator at Agua Caliente Cultural Museum at 760-833-8170 or dwellman@accmusum.org.
