Washington DC: American institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, 1993. Softcover. VG, clean, tight contents but with a wrinkle at spine and light shelf wear to covers. Art school ex-lib. copy with usual marks.. Color-illus. wraps. White lettering on green spine. vi + 62 pp. with bw photos throughout. Although entitled Guide to the Maintenance of Outdoor Sculpture, this book does not describe how to do conservation maintenance in a traditional sense. Instead, this is a nontechnical book which tries to guide individuals who are responsible for the preservation of a collection of outdoor sculpture through the process of generating and implementing a written maintenance program. According to the authors, "the intent of this guide is to present a model for developing maintenance programs for outdoor sculpture," and "actual maintenance procedures for a specific sculpture or collection are not included." The intended readership is broad-based and includes all the professionals who are identified as important players in the process: public art administrators, registrars, curators, museum directors, conservators, and others involved in the care of outdoor sculpture. While this book addresses the roles of all of these allied professionals, its target audience is private and public art administrators.
