Conservators come to the aid of Eyebeam

by

Like many Chelsea art galleries and art agencies, Eyebeam was devastated by hurricane Sandy.  Eyebeam, a nonprofit focusing on new media, was under three feet of dirty, toxic saltwater and its AV equipment, media and computers, including its archives documenting years of exhibitions and non-traditional media art projects, were extremely vulnerable and exposed.  New York City conservators mobilized and came to the nonprofits aid.  Watch a video produced by documentary artist Jonathan Minard capturing the conservation efforts of this community.
