Historic Preservation in NYC:
What do the last 50 years tell us about the next 50?

Join us as four leaders of museums and advocacy groups discuss the successes and failures of historic preservation within their field, examine current issues in preservation law and city development, and engage on current issues that can be better addressed in the future. The host, ArtWatch International, Inc., was founded in 1992 as an advocacy non-profit to promote an open dialogue on the conservation and stewardship of historically significant works of art and cultural monuments.

Following each speaker’s presentation, a short panel discussion will be moderated by the Director of ArtWatch International, Ruth Osborne.
