March 20, 2012Last week, students from Amherst and Mount Holyoke College traveled to the Yale Center for British Art to learn about art conservation careers in a trip co-sponsored by the Mead and the Amherst College Career Center. During our memorable visit, Theresa Fairbanks-Harris, Senior Conservator of Paper, led a thoughtful and engaging tour of the YCBA’s paper conservation facilities, and shared insights into the field of museum-based art conservation. Thanks to Coordinator of Community Programs Wendy Somes, for organizing the trip, and working the camera!
