Understanding light, the damage it causes, and human visual perception allows collection care staff to make informed decisions. Join CCAHA Senior Paper Conservator Heather Hendry for a free webinar explaining basic principles of managing light exposure.
Intended for collection managers, registrars, and curators, this session will address measuring and monitoring visible and UV light, current standards for light exposure during exhibition, and successful strategies to avoid unnecessary exposure. The relative light sensitivity of various art and archival material will be discussed. Case studies will demonstrate how small and large institutions control light on collections during exhibition and storage.
