Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum Conservation Talk
In July 2021, Alaska State Museum Conservator Ellen Carrlee and her two conservation interns, Adrienne Gendron and Alyssa Rino, came to the Sheldon Jackson Museum to condition report, repair (when necessary), and re-mount 4 grass and cedar bark mats on exhibit in the gallery. They used new hanging systems designed by exhibit staff Jackie Manning and Aaron Elmore in Juneau.
To hear about the interns’ and conservator’s work and the mats, join the Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum for a Zoom talk on Sat., Oct. 23rd at 1pm. Here is the Zoom link and more details:

This year’s mat project was the second part of a two-part conservation project – the first focused on broken fish trap models. Look at the Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum YouTube Channel to look at a video of last year’s Zoom talk on the fish trap work.
