Richard McCoy is the Conservator of Objects and Variable Art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, a columnist for the Art21 Blog and a Wikipedia enthusiast. Richard’s approaches to conservation and communication are very interesting and it was a pleasure, as always, to chat with him.
In this episode, Richard and I discuss what led him to the world of conservation, how participatory technologies can impact the conservation space and how to get a great CT scan of a Songye power figure.
