    Class of 2019 final presentations
    Aug. 20th, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
    Winterthur Rotunda
    Our third-year WUDPAC Fellows return to Winterthur to present formal illustrated lectures about their internship experiences. During this past year, these students worked in laboratories and cultural sites throughout the world. Their presentations will describe ten different journeys that will demonstrate the preservation of the arts and material culture. The works they treated included material culture reaching back almost two millennia; their treatments have been scientific and innovative, advancing our understanding of art materials and their preservation. Presentations from 9 AM to 4:30 PM, with a reception to follow. Please contact Susan Behrens in our office at (302) 831-8236 or by email at if you can attend.
