Partner Event: Getty Conservation Institute Virtual Lounge - Decorated Surfaces (Pre-Registration Required)

Attend
Overview

To access this program, you must receive a confirmation email from the Getty Conservation Institute and use that link to access the session. You won’t be able to access the session through this meeting portal.

Do you work with decorated surfaces, on objects, buildings or sites? Would you like to discuss with colleagues a project you are working on, and exchange information about different conservation approaches? Or would you like to hear about projects the GCI is engaged with in the vast field of decorated surfaces, from objects to buildings and sites? Join Stephanie, Leslie and Lori for an informal conversation about the conservation of decorated surfaces found on different substrates and within a variety of contexts internationally. This will be an opportunity to talk about challenges, different cultural contexts and related approaches, to share your projects or case studies, and to discuss research and training needs in the conservation of decorated surfaces

What is the Virtual Lounge?

Join a Getty Conservation Institute host for a coffee break or happy hour (depending on your time zone) in the Virtual Lounge, every Wednesday during the conference for an informal conversation focused on a different theme.  There will be a limited number of participants so that everyone will have a chance to engage in a relaxed environment and meet some new colleagues.

Health and Safety - Get the Lead Out

Attend
Overview

Presentations in This Session

  • Health and Safety - Get the Lead Out
    Monona Rossol

The handling and treatment of lead-containing materials is just one of many concerns that collection care personnel have about heavy metals in their collections. Like with mercury, mishandling can result in health risks and regulatory problems. For conservators, questions about identification, treatment, and handling will depend upon collection material type, intended use, display and storage conditions, and how the proposed work has been classified according to federal regulations - and federal regulations means collaboration with health and safety experts is critical.

The lecture will be delivered by chemist, artist, and industrial hygienist Monona Rossol, who has specialized in arts safety for over 30 years. The lecture and discussion will include identifying lead in your collections, descriptions of how and why lead is a hazard, establishing proper protocols involving lead-containing and contaminated collections, understanding the levels of training and certification needed, and preparing your collection areas for removal activities. Real-world examples and conservation procedures will be discussed for making the right treatment decisions for lead-containing collections, including recommended safety protocols.
