We're excited to announce a new schedule of free educational webinars for the fall and winter, with additional spring 2018 presentations to be announced shortly. This season, we'll cover a range of new topics, from marketing and fundraising strategies to the basics of cold storage, selecting housing materials, and mold prevention. Presenters for upcoming sessions include DHPSNY staff, as well as trained conservators and staff from the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts.
