Start Date

Description

This two-fold study engages a collection of early-to-mid-20th century Levantine textiles currently held by the Institute of Archaeology and Siegfried H. Horn Museum. The first part of the study involves identifying the potential causes of physical deterioration posed to the collection, which will contribute to a proposal for storing and displaying these textile artifacts. Keeping the museum’s resources in mind, the storage plan emphasizes preventive conservation, focusing on minimizing risk factors for potential future damage. The second part of the study provides written interpretive material for the museum exhibit that informs visitors of the textiles’ geographical, physical, and cultural origins.
