Wednesday, July 27, 2016
Posted by: Jesse A. Fivecoate
In partnership with the Kohler Foundation, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center is hosting the next NPS-NCPTT Divine Disorder conference on the preservation and interpretation of art environments, Sept. 26-28, 2017 in Sheboygan, WI. The events will coincide with JMKAC's 50th Anniversary exhibition of the same name.
This is a really interesting gathering that brings together ethnographers, vernacular architecture folks, art historians, historic preservationists, fine art conservators, archivists, and curators under the same roof to examine different methodologies and approaches to understanding and supporting these unique works of art, and the artists behind them. There is financial support available for speakers!

300–350 word abstract for session topics, including proposed speakers
Preference will be given to recent investigations, ideas, and projects, ideally referencing the last three years.
