The International Architectural Paint Research (APR) Conference will be held from March 15-17, 2017 in New York City on the historic campus of Columbia University. APR is a multi-disciplinary field, and this conference promises to bring together members of this vibrant, creative community who include historic paint analysts, scholars of historic interiors, art conservators, materials scientists, decorative painters, preservation architects, and heritage managers. We expect 150 - 175 attendees at this event.

The 2017 APR conference will be the sixth in a series of increasingly influential and groundbreaking conferences that bring together professionals from around the world to share their latest findings related to the analysis, research, conservation, and replication of historic finishes in the built environment. Conference topics are not limited to paints and include any architecturally engaged finish including wallpaper, gilding, leather, plasterwork and wood finishes. 

Previous APR conferences have been held in Stockholm, Sweden (2014, hosted by the Swedish National Heritage Board), Lincoln, England (2010, hosted by the University of Lincoln), and New York City (2008, hosted by Columbia University). Each conference has resulted in the publication of an illustrated volume of peer-reviewed papers by Archetype Publications Ltd., one of the world’s leading publishers of titles relating to technical art history and the conservation of art and antiquities.
