Berea College has been awarded an NEH Preservation Assistance Grant to
conserve a group of objects consisting of WWI posters, Chicago Transit
posters, and WPA posters. With this grant, we will be bringing a paper
conservator, Christine Young, to campus for a three-day visit. Before going
into private practice in Nashville, she worked with the Rocky Mountain
Regional Conservation Center in Denver, the Indiana Historical Society in
Indianapolis, and the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. As part
of the grant, Christine will be giving a public workshop on the nature,
deterioration, and preservation of art and artifacts on paper.
The workshop will take place on Thursday February 2 from 5 – 7 pm in Room
211 of the Rogers-Traylor Art Building.
There will be a reception following the workshop. Hopefully this event will provide an
opportunity for those who are charged with the care of works on paper
to come together to learn from our guest and one another.
Please RSVP by January 19 to adequately prepare for the
workshop, either by phone (859-985-3083) or email
