Description: We all have precious photographs and documents that we wish to preserve and treasure. But how to do it? Meet Alan Balicki, the museum's senior conservator, who will share the tools and materials he uses to preserve the past at New York City's oldest museum. Then work with a talented teaching artist to create a lovely, simple, and sturdy family album to take home and get you started. Parents and children will work together to create an album that will showcase and preserve the images, documents, and objects they value the most.
