A cultural recovery center will be opening on Monday, December 10 in Williamsburg to provide volunteer assistance and work space to museums, libraries, archives, historic sites, galleries, collectors, and artists impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Hyperallergic reports on this project of the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC).

“Paintings seem to be the bulk of the work needed — mold can grow between the stretcher and the canvas, even though the surface feels dry,” Institutional Advancement Director Eric Pourchot told Hyperallergic. “But we also know of photograph, works on paper, fiber, and sculpture materials that need work.”
