    Daughters of Utah Pioneers' Annual National Director's Meeting Features Scott M. Haskins Daughters of Utah Pioneers' Annual National Director's Meeting Features Scott M. Haskins Document Transcript

    • Daughters of Utah Pioneers Annual National Directors Meeting Features Scott M. HaskinsIt was a wonderful and unusual opportunity for Scott M. Haskins, worldrenowned painting and art conservator, to be the featured speaker to 450attendees at the main session of the Annual Directors Meeting of theDaughters of Utah Pioneers in Ogden, Utah on June 9, 2012.What made it so wonderful is the connection Mr. Haskins feels with the DUPhaving been working on the paintings in the collection of the InternationalMuseum of Pioneers in Salt Lake City since 1980.The museum collection has many important paintings many of which are fromthe Nauvoo Period (1840’s) and were brought across the plains by the pioneers.Many were made by the new immigrants in their new land. In all, its awonderful collection of Early Americana. Besides there being wonderful works ofart, the documentary value of the Expansionist Period of the United States ispriceless. Of course, the museum collection is not made up of only paintings. In
    • fact the thrill of seeing this museum is that of entering a time capsule of lifefrom the 1800’s as you are surrounded by all that they used with the walls linedof photos with facial expressions from those days.Therefore, the slides, photos and stories that Mr. Haskins showed the groupand told were not High Society – high brow narratives for art world conoscenti.The exact opposite! The slides were of DUP paintings and the stories broughtlaughter and taught home spun lessons of preserving family memorabilia,heirlooms, collectibles… and stuff!Scott M. Haskins is also the author of the best sold home preservation manualentitled, "How to Save Your Stuff from a Disaster." Once again, this down homeconnection has endeared him and helped him to target his message to theattendees of the DUP conference, assisting them with tips and stories on how toprotect and save the collectibles, and heirlooms in their care. Mr. Haskins spokefor about 25 minutes and no one was seen to have fallen asleep… which is quitesomething give the median age of this group!After the main session of the conference, about 50 lucky workshop attendeeshad the fun and educational experience of sitting together with Mr. Haskins asthey looked at examples, saw more slides, asked all the questions they couldthink of and had a fun sweepstakes drawing for over $2,000.00 in prizesincluding free video recorders for taping the contents of homes for insurancepurposes (thats a tip for you!) and a year’s membership to Ancestry.com. Theworkshop ended with a very useful panel discussion to bring together all thepreservation experts at the conference for discussion and questions.Mr. Haskins sold his book, "How to Save Your Stuff from a Disaster", at theconference along with an instructional CD and an anchoring product (in case ofhurricanes, earthquakes, tornados and grandkids) called Museum Wax. Fromthe profits of the items sold, Mr. Haskins company Save Your Stuff LLCdonated $326 to the DUP.As an ongoing effort to raise money for the Daughters of Utah Pioneers and toeducate its members on preservation techniques for the home and smallmuseum, an educational website showing art restoration- painting conservationprojects has been set up at (click on this name to go to the website-blog)Pioneer Art Restoration.
