Session Reviews by Stipend Awardees
The Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists (ARCS), with the generous assistance of COOKE'S CRATING & FINE ART TRANSPORTATION, INC., offered travel stipends to assist eight (8) registrars or collections specialists to attend the ARCS Biennial Meeting in November 2015, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
The Awards Committee (Irene Taurins, Andrea Wood, Mark Ryan, Holly Young and Diane Hart) reviewed an almost overwhelming response that required difficult decisions, as so many were qualified. Out of a strong field of candidates, we congratulate the following awardees and are pleased to post their session reviews for the ARCS membership.
