Artist Interview Workshops

Application deadline: March 1, 2016

Now in their fifth year, VoCA’s Artist Interview Workshops aim to educate conservators, curators, and other arts professionals on the methods and skills required to conduct successful artist interviews and gather knowledge essential to art preservation. In 2016, our partners for the workshops will be the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, on April 14–15, and the Denver Art Museum, on June 16–17. Additionally, a workshop designed specifically for conservation graduate students will be hosted by Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies at the Harvard Art Museums on April 17.

The workshops will be led by Gwynne Ryan, Chief Conservator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and oral historians Richard Cándida Smith, Jess Rigelhaupt, and Sam Redman. Workshop speakers will include Chad Alligood, Curator at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; Lauryn Guttenplan, Associate General Counsel at the Smithsonian Institution; James McElhinney, Artist and Oral Historian; Kate Lewis, Media Conservator at the Museum of Modern Art; Sarah Melching, Director of Conservation at the Denver Art Museum; Kate Moomaw, Associate Conservator for Modern and Contemporary Art at the Denver Art Museum; and Anne Reeve, Curator at Glenstone.

If you are interested in attending, the application for both programs is now available online. The deadline to apply is March 1. Applicants accepted into the Boston workshop will be notified by March 15, and successful applicants for the Denver workshop will be notified by April 11.
