The Port: Louise Nevelson, Dream House XLIII (1973) and Untitled (c. early 1980s)

The art conservation practice Caryatid Conservation Services, Inc., based in Miami, Florida, will soon begin treatment of two sculptures by Louise Nevelson, Dream House XLIII (1973) and Untitled (c. early 1980s), in the collection of the Pérez Art Museum Miami (formerly the Miami Art Museum). The Museum has been awarded a Bank of America Art Conservation Project Grant, which will support the treatment and the production of a documentary film about the project by The M Network.  A blog series will describe the project, as it evolves.This weekly blog will run on Wednesdays this summer and feature guest bloggers from the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Caryatid Conservation, The M Network and ARTEX Fine Art Services. In presenting the perspectives of scholars, conservators, film makers, and shippers, detailed windows will open onto the specialized work of those involved in this project.
