Doing the Most in a Triage Situation
I have been at the National Air and Space Museum this year working on a “triage” conservation project. The team put together a poster describing our work for the annual conference for the American Institute of Conservation (AIC) in Miami this week.
The main purpose of the project is to perform artifact condition assessments, treatments, and documentation for the safe storage of artifacts identified as requiring immediate treatment at the National Air and Space Museum (NASM). The artifacts include modern and historic technological devices (aircraft components, firearms, space history components), scientific instruments, and textiles.
