Not sure what to do with your great-grandmother’s hand-stitched quilt or your collection of family photos? Unsure how you should best care for your personal art collection? Filoli, in cooperation with the Bay Area Art Conservation Guild, is hosting a Conservation Roadshow weekend with dozens of conservation specialists who will offer expert advice and practical tips on preserving, conserving, or restoring your treasured possessions. The conservators will examine, assess, and propose different ways that you can best look after your art, objects, and memorabilia. Objects you can bring for assessment include paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, books, manuscripts and documents, sculpture, decorative arts, medals, textiles, and much more. Free informative programs will be offered throughout the weekend. In addition to general admission, the cost is $25 for one 10-minute consultation with a conservator. Proceeds benefit the Filoli Conservation Fund. Consultation ticket does not include admission. Ten minute consultation time will be assigned upon arrival.
