Lecture by Scott Kreilick: Conservation of Bronze Sculpture and Monuments

Wed. Apr. 5, 2017 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm
The German Society is pleased to host on April 5 at 3:00pm a lecture by Scott Kreilick of Kreilick Conservation on the Conservation of Bronze Sculpture and Monuments. This free lecture is open to all members, friends, and the public. Come learn about this fascinating subject from a true expert!   Bronze has been a material of choice of sculptors and designers of commemorative memorials and monuments for centuries. While its durability and beauty have long been admired, bronze in an outdoor environment does nevertheless deteriorate without proper care and preservation. Using examples from projects over twenty years, T. Scott Kreilick of Kreilick Conservation, LLC will describe the techniques and tools used to conserve and restore our cultural resources.   Mr. Kreilick received his BA and MS (Historic Preservation, Specializing in Architectural Conservation) degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, and completed a conservation internship at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Mr. Kreilick is a Professional Associate of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC). Mr. Kreilick has performed conservation treatments, assessments, or material analysis at more than thirty National Landmarks, and conserved more than 200 monuments and outdoor sculptures.   Although the event is free, please register with the office so we know how many guests to expect. RSVP to 215-627-2332 or info@germansociety.org.
All of our events are open to the public.
We welcome members and non-members alike.
