Abstract

We are the Fab Five: an elite team of object conservators dedicated to extolling the simple virtues of cleanliness, out to clean up the museum’s collection – one dirty object at a time. Each day our mission is to transform dirty and inadequately stored objects from drab to fab. Our video presentation will offer cleaning tips based on our move experience in each of our respective specialties: Mechanics, Accessories, Ethics, Documentation, and Health & Safety. Everyone should be able to make their collection glam-tastic with these helpful hints.
