    Students interested in applying to the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation should not miss the Master's program annual Portfolio Day, held at the Winterthur Museum, in which the entering class of graduate students shares their pre-program resumes. Pre-program candidates and advisors can engage one on one with the graduate students and ask questions about the process involved in applying to graduate school for art conservation. Graduate students' portfolios and studio art will be on exhibit. This year's student speaker, starting at 4PM, is Caitlin Richeson, who will present a talk entitled “The Conservation of Large-Scale Installation Art at the Glenstone Museum.” Caitlin will gladly field questions from the audience at the end of her talk. After Caitlin’s presentation, The WUDPAC Class of 2020 will share their pre-program portfolios outside the Gallery Reception Area at Winterthur Museum. Students and visitors are invited to talk to first-year WUDPAC students for gaining insight and advice, and tour the conservation labs in the Winterthur Research Building. The following labs will be open: painting, paper, book, textiles, furniture, objects conservation, and the analytical labs. Current second-year WUDPAC students will be available in the labs to explain their current conservation projects and the curriculum.
