The Emily Schuetz Stryker Memorial Award was established in 2014, in memory and in honor of Emily Schuetz Stryker, a graduate of the WUDPAC class of 2013. In the words of her classmate, “Emily was undoubtedly one of the strongest, most brilliant, and most positive forces in our class – and her inclusion in our group made us all better people, better friends, and better conservators”. Each year, as the recipient is selected, we keep these words in mind as well as the promise to do our best to select someone who shares Emily’s interests and passions: textile conservation, preventive conservation minor, Maryland, travel, and financial stability.
2022 Stryker Memorial Award recipient Adriana Benavides is a graduate student at Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation majoring in paintings conservation with a minor in preventive conservation. She is fascinated by the structural and social complexity that paintings can offer and is enthusiastic about their preservation and treatment. She is also committed to making conservation more accessible to the wider public and breaking down barriers between conservation and other material culture-based professions. Before coming to Delaware, she lived in Maryland where she completed her undergraduate education at Towson University with majors in Art History and Studio Arts, and minors in Chemistry and German. She also interned at the Walters Art Museum and worked at an archival frame shop, both in Baltimore City. She spent her first summer of graduate school at the Balboa Art Conservation Center in San Diego, California. In her free time, she loves visiting museums, listening to podcasts, cuddling with her cats, cooking with her partner, and playing video games or Dungeons and Dragons with her friends.
