This site, from the Minnesota Historical Society, has many useful tips for salvaging and preserving art, paper, textiles, ceramics, computer discs, wood, etc.:

  REGIONAL ALLIANCE FOR PRESERVATION

This program, at www.rap-arcc.org, has information and links to information about preserving and caring for art. It is primarily for museums and institutions but is also useful to artists. Of particular interest perhaps right now are the salvage tips at www.rap-arcc.org/whatsnew/hurricane.htm. Here is the organization's description of itself:

The Regional Alliance for Preservation (RAP) totals 14 organizations located throughout the United States. RAP serves as an allied force to assist a wide variety of cultural institutions with collections care activities.

The mission of the Regional Alliance for Preservation (RAP) is to provide comprehensive preservation information to cultural institutions and the public throughout the United States.

To accomplish this mission we:

* cooperate as a national network of preservation/conservation organizations dedicated to reaching the broadest audience with our coordinated outreach efforts

* disseminate information on the preservation of material culture through educational events, publications, references, and the RAP website, and

* foster awareness about the importance of preserving our cultural heritage
 
Art information from the publishers of studioNOTES, the journal for working artists of all styles, media and geographic locations. Includes practical stuff like art opportunities, marketing and promotion for artists, as well as "deeper" stuff like the role of art, the worth of art history, and the use or non-use of mind-altering techniques and substances. Some humor, quotes, oddities and other material for your mental collage.
