The Port: Pérez Art Museum Miami and University of Miami Collaborate on Exhibition

Pérez Art Museum Miami’s collection and exhibitions staff worked closely with Scott Reinke, chief conservator at Otto G. Richter Library, on the project over the course of two weeks. The conservation studio is equipped with specialized book mounting and paper conservation equipment that is essential to properly exhibit a collection of this stature.

Pérez Art Museum Miami will continue to work with Scott Reinke and his team during the installation process at the new Museum.
