Elkhart museum offering virtual photograph care class

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. – The Elkhart County Historic Museum is providing a virtual class on looking after pictures next week.

This class, the second of 3 virtual classes in the series, will cover the storage and handling of historical pictures.

“The class will explain the different agents of deterioration that can harm objects over time so our participants understand why storage in an attic or basement may not be the best environment for their family treasures,” stated Michelle Nash, Manager of Collections at the museum and trainer of the class. “While I will be focusing on how these tips apply to photographs, they are true in most cases for storing your beloved family textiles, important papers, or other collectables.”

This complimentary program will be provided on Thursday, February 11 at 7 p.m. and Friday, February 12 at 1 p.m. by means of the Google Meet platform.

Registration for the occasion is needed and closes one hour prior to the start of each program.
