"On Friday, March 23rd, 2012, The Monuments Conservancy will present its 22nd Annual Symposium at the Time & Life Building, Rockefeller Center, 1271 Avenue of the Americas (at 50th Street), Henry Luce Room (second floor), from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 pm.
The afternoon session will be devoted to The High School for Preservation Arts Program at the Williamsburg (NY) High School of Architecture and Design, the first of its kind in the United States. Designed by curriculum specialists at the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Center for Building Knowledge, the program combines academics with a hands-on approach, training students in the preservation arts and professions such as stone carving, stained glass, woodworking, conservation, architecture, city planning, and engineering.
Students view subjects through the lens of historic preservation, focusing on a specific historic structure or artifact, to study the elements of its creation, preservation, and interpretation. "
