“Divine Disorder, Conserving the Chaos: Conference on the Conservation of Folk and Outsider Art” will be held February 15 and 16, 2012, at Northwestern State University, Natchitoches, Louisiana. The conference organizer, the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, is still soliciting presentation proposals that discuss topics relevant to Outsider and Folk art conservation and preservation. The deadline for submissions of abstracts is October 1, 2011; early registration rates are in effect through December 31, 2011.

Renowned artist Clementine Hunter lived near Natchitoches, so conference attendees can use the opportunity to also visit Hunter’s home, Melrose Plantation, where they can see Hunter’s murals!
