Join us for a tour of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery Archives, a discussion on the importance of preservation, and an enclosure demonstration. The importance of preservation within any institution that holds special collections is imperative for the longevity of the collection. All attendees will have a chance to make an enclosure for a rare book or catalogue from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery Archives collection, so bring your crafty side with you!
Supplies will be provided!
