CONSERVATION AND ITS OBJECT: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY DISCUSSION
The practice of conservation has developed from a relatively insular field to an important area of public policy and research. How is the theory and practice of conservation shaped by the object under consideration? The panel will provide an important--indeed, a unique--perspective on comparative conservation. It will contribute to current discussions at MICA, and will expose students to career opportunities they might not have been aware of. The panel will consist of four speakers: Ana Foer, art objects conservator, fiber department technician at MICA and instructor in the department of art history; Frank Matero, building and materials conservator, University of Pennsylvania; Melissa Cohen, AIA, preservation architect in Washington, D.C.; and Eric Holcomb, city planner with the Baltimore Commission on Architectural and Historic Preservation. The panel will be moderated by Michele Lamprakos, PhD, practicing architect and instructor at MICA and the University of Maryland.Photo caption: MICA faculty member Ana Foer is part of panel discussing the practice of conservation.
