Expert Lends a Helping Hand

Catherine Tully recently completed graduate degree in conservation of antiquities at University College London; after working in the Middle East for a year, she found herself in Spokane for a few weeks this summer and offered her expertise to the museum.  In the photos, Catherine repairs a vase from the Campbell House in the Secret Life of an Artifact gallery while students visiting from Madison Elementary look on. Cathy spent her time at the Northwest Museum working with 20th century plastics, Mexican masks and other items from the collection in need of her attention. Preservation is ongoing in every Museum and we at the Northwest Museum are constantly working to prolong the lives of our historic treasures.
