Do you have a stash of framed objects and old frames and don’t know what to do with them? This webinar will focus on the ways that smaller institutions can care for those frames and their contents safely and economically. Topics will include storage tips on a budget; whether to use glass or Plexiglas®; the nuts and bolts of framing hardware; caring for period frames; and the advantages of using standard frame sizes. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion at the end.
