Georgia O'Keeffe Museum announces Dale Kronkright to participate in Getty Conservation symposium
Kronkright’s conservation expertise lies in quantifiable imaging, the process of using photographic methods to document and highlight visible conditions and fabrication details of works of art, heritage sites and museum collections.
SANTA FE, NM.- The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum announced that Dale Kronkright, the Museum’s head of conservation, has been invited to be a panelist at the Getty Conservation Institute. Kronkright, along with a small group of conservation experts, will participate in the “Integrating Imaging and Analytical Technologies for Conservation” symposium held September 10 – 12, 2013 at the Getty Center in Los Angeles.

Kronkright’s conservation expertise lies in quantifiable imaging, the process of using photographic methods to document and highlight visible conditions and fabrication details of works of art, heritage sites and museum collections. The advent of computers and digital 3D imaging has made it possible to turn photographs into computer-searchable data that is used to measure quantifiable information on the physical changes in the work of art or object itself. Identifying small, incremental changes in objects and attempting to characterize, measure and control them, is an important part of conservation efforts at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.

"Kronkright’s expertise in implementing digital methods of art conservation into museum practice has been invaluable to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and our efforts to preserve Miss O’Keeffe’s work for future generations,” said Robert A. Kret, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum director. “We are proud that the Getty Conservation Institute has recognized Kronkright’s contributions to his field and has asked him to participate in the symposium.”

“Emerging digital preservation technologies offer conservators a new set of astonishingly accurate and low cost tools, allowing us to monitor the condition of a work of art or an entire historic site with unimaginable accuracy, said Kronkright. “The Conservation program at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum has been at the leading edge of exploring and developing these technologies. I am thrilled that we have been asked by the Getty Conservation Institute to share our work with the world’s leading preservation and digital imaging scientists and engineers.”
