Conference Sessions Brief Overview:
The three concurrent tracks of sessions will focus on the buildings, structures, sites, districts, objects, and landscapes that provide a sense of orientation; a sense of place to Oklahomans. TRACK A: Homes and Hometowns features the neighborhoods, individual houses, commercial buildings, sacred places, and other properties that define the unique character of our communities. TRACK B: Technologies and Techniques explores how preservationists use current technology and preservation techniques to share information, adapt historic buildings for new uses, and protect all types of properties for future generations. TRACK C: Landmarks and Landscapes examines the vernacular and designed landscapes and the icons that connect Oklahomans to the places they call home.
Special events include the Plenary Session, opening reception in the courthouse square; local tours; Preservation Oklahoma, Inc.’s annual meeting and luncheon; and the State Historic Preservation Office’s annual awards banquet.
May 29, 2013 – June 1, 2013
The theme of the meeting will be the Contemporary in Conservation, focusing on contemporary approaches to conservation, not only the conservation of contemporary art, and will include perspectives from within as well as outside the field. In addition to the treatment of contemporary art, the conference will consider topics including: current issues in conservation and preservation, such as digitization, environmental sustainability or the effects of architectural design on the preservation of objects; current trends in exhibition design and the new challenges they present for preservation including greater physical access, longer display times and more touring exhibitions. In addition to conservators, we welcome participation from related professionals. The meeting will feature all-attendee and specialty focused sessions.
