Extraordinary Spaces: Site-Specific Collections and Their Challenges

1,830 views

Published on

Historic and other site-specific spaces open to the public offer a genuine and comprehensive look into a particular collection and time period. The site is part of that experience. However, for better or worse these sites are not set up as conventional exhibition spaces. One of the main questions we will address is where to draw the line between retaining the authenticity of the experience vs. protecting the objects, the site, and the visitors? In this session we will discuss topics such as housing collections in non-climate controlled spaces, object displays, balancing visitor access with the preservation of the collection and the site, how to incorporate signage, working with a limited or volunteer staff, and on-going conservation and restoration needs. A variety of unique spaces will be presented to address these issues and more as each site has a host of specific circumstances particular to each place that standard exhibition spaces do not have to worry about.
