The Kislak Center at MDC Special Collections is launching Deep Dive, a series of scholarly lectures, panel discussions, and interactive presentations focused on single topics relevant to the history of the early Americas and the conservation of primary source materials. Participants and programming will come from a consortium formed among MDC, the University of Miami, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Library of Congress, with the intention of strengthening the relationship between the stewards of objects donated by the Kislak Foundation.
To inaugurate the discussion series, conservator Viviana Dominguez will share key preservation insights related to these important cultural objects. Viviana Dominguez is a fine arts conservator specializing in murals, paintings, works of art on paper and historic finishes. She has more than 25 years of experience in the field, and has preserved prominent private and public art collections.
