The Barberini Tapestries
When I am not in the studio, I am the art conservator
at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art
on the University of Oregon Campus.
Last year at the museum, we installed the Barberini Tapestries.
During the course of my own studies I spent some time in Italy
right after the death of my father, John. There I learned about conservation,
art as a dispute resolution tool and how to mend a broken heart.
I often think about my time there and hope to return.
Recently, I was able to meet up with some local artists and
discuss the experience our prep team had and how
wonderful it was to work with the conservators from
The Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
