Civil War Lecture Series: The Many Faces of Preservation External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Preservation is the act of caring for objects to prolong their lives; however, there is no one absolute way to go about this. Conservation stabilizes objects in their current state, whereas restoration replaces or adds parts to return objects to their former glory. Sometimes a combination of these methods is useful. Picking an appropriate process depends on many factors: what is the object made of, how it was used, and where will it be displayed. We'll delve into the theory of preservation using examples from the Museum's collection, including the conservation of USS Monitor artifacts and the restoration of the Cape Charles Lighthouse lens.

Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montez External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
The Stauth Museum will be hosting two very special exhibitions over the summer. They are vastly different in technique, content, and scope of work yet they are similar in the astonishing detail, complexity, and extraordinary skill needed to create each work of art. ////// Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montes -- Jessie, a western Kansas folk artist, creates his artwork from corrugated paperboard (cardboard). With no formal education, no schooling in art, and no previous history of art-making, Mr. Montes created complex visual statements with simple materials. Looking for a way to relax after his son and daughter were called to duty in the Persian Gulf War, he started cutting cardboard and experimented with different designs and themes on frames for their pictures. Soon he began to fill in the frames with landscapes, designs and portraits. 3-dimensional sculptures came soon after that and his artistic career in this unique medium was launched. Using only modest tools of cardboard cut in 1/4 strips, tweezers, a sharp razor blade and paste, his subject matter includes a mixture of ethnic and social influences, architectural themes, and popular culture. Jessie Montes (1935-2013) ////// We are expecting many groups for this exhibit, so please call in advance to schedule groups of 5 or more.
