“As a genre of art that’s subject to continuous change, the preservation of vernacular art environments poses an array of challenges. The documentation, preservation, and interpretation of sites that are in the process of being created present particularly demanding considerations, including how to “preserve” something that’s alive and growing while respecting an artist’s freedom, and managing relationships between artists, nonprofits, and communities. Moderated by Lisa Stone, this session brought together environment builders, site directors, and a documentary photographer who discussed issues relative to three sites: Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, Dr. Charles Smith’s African-American Heritage Museum + Black Veterans Archive, and the Heidelberg Project.”
