September 18-19 2010 - Open days at IRPA/KIK

For the occasion of the Open monument days "Steen & Co" of the Brussels-Capital Region, on the weekend of September 18-19, IRPA/KIK opens its doors to the public. A unique opportunity to discover how our stone heritage is protected and preserved: the specialists of the Monuments unit and the Workshop for conservation/restoration of stone sculpture unfold how they diagnosticise deterioration phenomenons on stone, and how they outline an appropriate conservation/restoration treatment.

Most of the other conservation/restoration workshops - painting, polychromed wood sculpture, leather and paper, finishings of historic buildings, textiles, metal, glass - will be open for visit as well.

Last but not least we welcome you in our fully renewed library: a unique documentation centre with art historical and art technical publications and a collection of over 1 million historical and recent photographs of Belgium's cultural heritage.
