Preservation road show set for April 26

In honor of National Preservation Week (April 27-May 3), the Indiana Historical Society will host a free road show Saturday, April 26, at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center, 450 W. Ohio St., Indianapolis.

The IHS has assembled professionals in their fields to share valuable information and expertise, and the public is invited to register for the event in order to secure a free one-on-one consultation about the care, preservation and value of their personal items and heirlooms.

“Bringing appraisers and conservators together is a unique addition to the popular road show format, and a great opportunity for our guests to discover more about their valued family heirlooms,” said John Herbst, IHS president and chief executive officer.

Free programs will be offered throughout the day. It also includes complimentary parking and free admission to the Indiana Experience. Guests are encouraged to check out the W. Brooks and Wanda Y. Fortune History Lab, which highlights conservation methods and allows them to try their hands at methods conservators use to mend tears in paper.

Appraisers will be present to evaluate works on paper, textiles, paintings, furniture, artifacts, rugs and jewelry. Conservators will be present to answer preservation questions about works on paper (letters, certificates and photographs) vellum, textiles and paintings. Detailed photographs of objects too large for guests to carry and maintain during the visit are welcomed. Appraisers also invite registered guests to send photographs of any object prior to the show to allow for detailed research.

Appointments are available from 10 a.m.-noon and 2-4 p.m. Reservations can be made at www.indianahistory.org or by calling 317-232-1882.
