With Chelsea galleries and many New York artists struggling with the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, the Museum of Modern Art, together with conservators from the American Institute for Conservation Collections Emergency Response Team, are offering a presentation on saving flood-damaged artworks.

Furthermore, MoMA has created this document “Immediate Response for Collections’’ with guidelines for dealing with art damaged by flooding. It offers step-by-step procedures about how best to conserve water-damaged art in a variety of media including library and archival materials, as well as suppliers and emergency services.
