An Evening with APTNE, Featuring Mary Kay Judy

Thursday, June 8th (6 - 8pm)
Neighborhood Preservation Center (232 East 11th Street, NYC 10003)
$10 per person, space is limited, registration required online

Join us and the Association for Preservation Technology - Northeast Chapter (APTNE) for an evening of socializing, learning about the work of APTNE, and enjoying a presentation by Mary Kay Judy, architectural conservator and preservation consultant. Mary Kay will present Reversible Monuments: Historic Environment as Contemporary Medium, focusing on the phenomenon of contemporary artists using historic architecture, features, infrastructure, and streetscapes as the primary artistic medium of their work, as opposed to solely places of art installation or exhibition. By their nature, Reversible Monuments have a strong conservation and historic preservation component. The works are meant to be temporary, reversible and designed in such a way that no materials, means and methods will leave a last impact and all inevitably highlight the historic resource's most enduring and significant features.
