#ARCSChat April 7

You know all those environmental standards we’ve been holding on to so tightly in our loan contracts? Yeah, well, they are wrong. Join #ARCSChat for episode two of our two-part series on loan contracts. Guests Joel Taylor, Senior Project Specialist at the Getty Conservation Institute, and Caitlin Spangler-Bickell, Graduate Intern at the Getty Conservation Institute and PhD candidate with the research network NACCA (New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art), will join hosts John Robinette (@CargaLatina), Robin Bauer Kilgo (@rbkilgo), and Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob) to report their ongoing research and explain why we should let go of this notion.
