Representatives from Adelphi Paper Hangings; Cooper-Hewitt Museum; Historic New England; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the National Park Service joined Isabelle Dubois-Brinkmann, curator of the Musée du Papier Peint in Rixheim, France, for a series of discussions and presentations on using wallpaper in a historic setting, conservation issues and treatments, and reproducing original papers.
