This Friday, October 28, 5 – 8 p.m., is the Buffalo State Art Conservation Department’s annual Open House. If you have any interest in the ways that historic–even rare–paper, bound works, ceramics, painted works, etc. are kept “alive” for future generations to love, you really should attend this open house. This is where the magic of conservation happens!
What you come away from this once-a-year event with is an appreciation for the fact that conservationists are exceptional people with great knowledge of art, art history, culture and science–yes, science!!! Students accepted into this highly competitive program come in with a lot of experience and demonstrated knowledge already and go through this intensive graduate program so that they emerge the most well-prepared conservationists for whatever they encounter in the field.
