What do Kermit the Frog and John Marshall’s Supreme Court robe have in common? Not much, except for the expert work of textile conservator, Howard Sutcliffe, who has preserved a range of priceless objects including the beloved Muppet and Marshall’s robe.
Over 300+ hours of work, Sutcliffe stabilized the silk and reversed some of the earlier “repairs.”
Join Preservation Virginia’s Director of Museum Operations, Jennifer Hurst-Wender and Curator of Collections, Lea Lane for an in-depth discussion with Howard Sutcliffe, Principal at River Region Costume and Textile Conservation on the preservation of John Marshall’s Supreme Court Robe.
