Connecting to Collections Care Wants You

The Connecting to Collections Care (C2C Care) Professional Development Working Group (PDWG), is an outreach program of FAIC and generously supported by the Institute for Museum and Library Services, is seeking new members. This is a volunteer, two-year position (January 2020 - December 2021), with the potential to renew for a second term. Their mission is the development of educational programming for staff and volunteers of cultural institutions.

If you have an interest in preservation and collections care outreach and any prior work experience in small to mid-size institutions and their particular challenges of limited budgets and resources, please send your CV and a brief statement of interest to PDWG Chair Emily Rainwater at ERainwater@gmail.com  by Friday November 1, 2019.

ARCS Campaign Sponsor

ARCS wouldn’t be able to put on our programs without the support of our generous sponsors, and today we would like to introduce one of our Gold Sponsors, Apice SCRL, and let them tell you about some recent projects with which they were involved: 
“2019 marked the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, and we had the privilege of taking care of the handling and transportation for a series of eminent exhibitions dedicated to this important anniversary, including Leonardo da Vinci’s Codex Leicester: Water as a Microscope of Nature, at the Uffizi, Florence; Leonardo’s Botany, at the Museo di Santa Maria Novella, Florence; Leonardo’s ‘Last Supper’ for Francis I: A Masterpiece of Silk and Silver at the Palazzo Reale, Milan, and Leonardo and the Litta Madonna at the Museo Poldi Pezzoli, Milan. Having the opportunity to be so intimately involved with the works of this creative genius in all his roles - scientist, engineer, and artist - was an emotional experience for our teams; one of the most original personalities of all time truly came alive”.
