Preserving the Past - A Career in Historic Preservation and Restoration
Ssession Time: 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Historic preservation is a growing field that focuses on the protection of cultural heritage through the restoration and conservation of buildings, documents, art and artifacts with historic significance. The most common jobs at these facilities are for archeologists, preservation architects, curators, archivists and public historians. Specially trained craftspeople such as masons and carpenters are instrumental in the restoration and maintenance of historical structures.
In the last few decades public recognition of the cultural and economic value of historic preservation has increased dramatically. As a result, the number of architects involved in preservation projects is steadily growing.
Join us on December 4th when representatives from Stan Hywet Hall and Garden discuss, with your students, the background, education and training needed, and on the job responsibilities of a career in historic preservation and restoration.
Schools interested in participating in this educational opportunity should contact John Ramicone at 216-916-6360 or firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1st.
