2 Works for You takes a unique look at how the Gilcrease Museum preserves art and documents

Declaration of Independence at GilcreaseKJRH – 2 News Works for You

TULSA, Okla. — More than 6,400 people visited the Gilcrease Museum in six days to see one document – a handwritten copy of the Declaration of Independence.

That’s three times more than the average visits the museum had last year during the same time frame.

What visitors don’t see is what goes on behind the scenes at the museum’s Helmerich Research Center where they preserve this document and thousands more to ensure their lifespan.

2 Works for You takes a unique look at the center’s lab with the museum’s Chief Conservator Joanna Didik and the Curator of History Mark Dolph.
