The Art Conservation Club (ARTCC)
ARTCC is for anyone, major or nonmajor, who is interested in the preservation of material culture and simply having fun. This club embraces all aspects of art conservation, including art, art history, and chemistry. Even more, this club provides a great opportunity to interact with peers and meet some great people.
ARTCC offers a variety of events to anyone who is interested. In the past, the club attended interesting lectures at Wintethur Museum and traveled to see art exhibitions. The club is not only an academic club, but also a social club. From pumpkin carving contests, to smashing and reassembling pots, to watching movies, to enjoying a piece of watermelon, this club shares fun and interesting aspects of art conservation.
So don't miss out, come join ARTCC!
