Preserving Brooklyn

November 7, 2018, 6:30pm8:00pm

Some of the very best work in historic preservation – the restoration of old structures and monuments that give a city its character and history – is being done right here in Brooklyn. Whether at Green-Wood, with its tens of thousands of gravestones, mausoleums, stained glass windows, and landmarked structures, or across the borough, these important projects are keeping Brooklyn in the forefront of the field. Come hear about best practices that ensure that our most beautiful structures do not vanish from the borough’s ever-changing landscape.

Neela Wickremesinghe, Green-Wood’s Manager of Restoration and Preservation, will moderate this discussion on how Brooklyn’s past is being preserved for generations to come. Panelists include:

  • Jennifer Shork, Senior Conservator, Integrated Conservation Resources
  • Edward Heins, Stained Glass Conservator, Art Glass Brooklyn,
  • Ernest Porcelli, Owner and Stained Glass artist, Art Glass Brooklyn
  • Emily Valentine Sottile, Director of Sacred Space Studio, EverGreene Architectural Arts
  • Kate Ottavino, Stone Conservator, A. Ottavino Corp

$5 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $10 for non-members

This program is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
