May at The Center: Remembering Bob Glick, Our Favorite Artists, Conserving a 20th Century Television Cabinet, AIC Event Highlights

 
 

In our May newsletter we remember advisory board member, Bob Glick, who offered his guidance and expertise to The Conservation Center for over 13 years. Bob contributed to the success of The Center in immeasurable ways.

 In Our Favorite Artists, three Alphonse Mucha pieces opened a conversation about the artists that inspire us (read to the end of the article to get a list of our favorites!). “Adding ‘Magnetism’ to Places Where People Gather” looks at how we were able to conserve an RCA television cabinet that came to us from the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis with water damage. Finally, scroll to the bottom to see photos from our AIC event at The Center!
 
REMEMBERING BOB GLICK
OUR FAVORITE ARTISTS: SELECTING A FRAME FOR MUCHA'S "LA DAME"
At The Conservation Center we are very fortunate to be surrounded by amazing art every day. It is an extraordinary opportunity to work so intimately with many great pieces created by artists whom you have studied your whole life.   However, during the day-to-day we often find ourselves focusing more on the physicality of the pieces as opposed to having discussions about the many artists that sparked our interest in this field in the first place.  Read on to the end of this article to find out which artists are some of our team's favorites!  Recently, we had the opportunity to conserve and frame one of our regular favorites, Alphonse Mucha.

"ADDING 'MAGNETISM' TO PLACES WHERE PEOPLE GATHER": CONSERVING A 20TH CENTURY TELEVISION CABINET WITH WATER DAMAGE
At The Conservation Center, we are always excited to treat pieces that utilize a wide range of our conservators’ skills, and help to preserve important moments in our cultural history. So, when a RCA 648PTK television cabinet came to us from the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, we were excited to discuss the treatment options available for the conservation of the piece.
Thank you to all that attended our event on May 29th for the Emerging Conservators Professional Network. We hope that everyone is enjoying the AIC conference this week!

Take a look at a few photos from the event below.
