This three-part webinar series provides a general overview of metal objects, such as public art and architecture, that are usually found outdoors. Included is information about the properties of metals and how to identify them, as well as a discussion of common causes of degradation, corrosion products, and outdoor environments that cause corrosion. Upon completion of this series, participants will be able to • identify a wide variety of metals used in outdoor applications; • identify corrosion problems associated with metals; • use this knowledge to create basic condition reports; and • provide recommendations for the basic care of common metals found outdoors. The workshop will be held virtually in three sessions on June 15, 22 and 29, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. MST. Workshop space is limited, so please only register if you are able to attend all three dates. This workshop is being offered in partnership with the BC Museums Association.
