About

The art conservation practice Caryatid Conservation Services, Inc., based in Miami, Florida, completed a four-month treatment of two sculptures by Louise Nevelson, Dream House XLIII (1973) and Untitled (c. early 1980s), in the collection of the Pérez Art Museum Miami (formerly the Miami Art Museum). The Museum was awarded a Bank of America Art Conservation Project Grant, to support the treatment and the production of a documentary film about the project by The M Network. This blog series describes the project, as it evolved. Weekly blog posts ran throughout the summer of 2013 and featured guest bloggers from the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Caryatid Conservation, The M Network and ARTEX Fine Art Services. In presenting the perspectives of scholars, conservators, film makers, and shippers, detailed windows opened onto the specialized work of those involved in this project.
