The International Architectural Paint Research (APR) Conference will be held from March 15 - 17, 2017 in New York City on the historic campus of Columbia University. APR is a multi-disciplinary field, and this conference promises to bring together many members of this vibrant, creative community that includes historic paint analysts, scholars of historic interiors, art and architecture conservators, material scientists, decorative painters, preservation architects, and heritage managers.

The 2017 APR conference will be the sixth in a series of increasingly influential and groundbreaking conferences that brings together professionals from around the world to share their latest findings related to the study, analysis, conservation, and replication of historic finishes in the built environment. With over 30 speakers from 14 different countries, conference topics are not limited to paints, and include architecturally engaged finishes such as wallpaper, gilding, plasterwork, and wood finishes.
