WELCOME to the Class of 2013

The Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation is pleased to welcome the Class of 2013. Bartosz Dajnowski, Greta Glaser, Laura Hartman, Morgan Hayes, Sara Lapham, Sara Levin, Carrie McNeal, Crista Pack, Emily Schuetz, and Elena Torok arrived on August 2 and have already completed an intensive two-week review of fundamental concepts in inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and calculus.

Students in the Class of 2013 come from a wide range of strong and diverse backgrounds. They have lived and worked in many different places, including Portland, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Poland and Costa Rica. Undergraduate majors range from Art History and Fine Arts to Neuroscience and Physics. Collectively, the class has spent over 32,000 hours working in museums and private conservation studios across the country, including The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the Brooklyn Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Peabody Essex Museum and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. Members of the class have assisted with the preservation of murals, archaeological objects, Egyptian mummies, contemporary sculpture and architectural facades.

These cumulative experiences will undoubtedly serve as a substantial foundation for the students as they begin their graduate education. The Class of 2013 is thrilled to be part of the Winterthur/University of Delaware community and looks forward to continuing to learn more about the field of conservation over the next three years.
