Taking Care of My Art

This journal assignment should demonstrate your ability to:
· Consider threats to the condition of artworks or other special objects.
· Ask questions about taking care of artworks.

Write about the following items in your journal:

  1. What other artwork (or other valued object) have you ever seen that was damaged by people or nature?
  2. Do you or your family have an object you handle or store very carefully because it is special? If so, say what the object is and tell why it's important?
  3. What question would you like to ask the conservator, John Griswald, about the condition of the Southwest Pieta, about how to restore or protect it, or about another outdoor sculpture?
