On July 21, The Wolfsonian hosted an AFR Miami workshop on disaster preparedness, targeted towards museum professionals. The program featured facilitators Rosa Lowinger (conservator, Rosa Lowinger & Associates), Stephanie Hornbeck (director of conservation, Caryatid Conservation Services), and Viviana Dominguez (owner of Art Conservators Lab).
Focusing on fire and water damage to collections, the presenters provided information on initial response and the importance of prior preparation. Following the presentations, workshop participants took part in hand-on activities to learn about early response to fire and water events.
