The Modular Cleaning Program (MCP) is a systematic approach for the cleaning of artworks utilizing a Filemaker Pro database system. This system has been developed to assist conservators in their approach to cleaning art utilizing water-borne systems, solvents, solvent gels, and emulsions. In addition, this aids the conservator in formulating and combining stock solutions, which allows the conservator to create optimized cleaning solutions for more precise and tailored treatments. While developed from the perspective paintings conservation, the methodology is applicable to any cleaning challenge.
This five-day workshop consists of approximately 2 days of lecture interspersed with hands-on activities and will be held at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, adjacent to the Midwest Art Conservation labs. Prerequisite: graduate training in art conservation or comensurate experience.
Workshop fee: $900
