Ingrid Neuman, instructor of Collections Care and Preventive Conservation, was awarded a Naum Gabo Trust traveling scholarship to attend the 50th anniversary ICOM-CC (International Council on Museums - Conservation Working Group) meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark. This meeting's theme was connecting the Past to the Future. Over 1000 conservators form 60 countries attended throughout the five-day conference. Included with the travel grant was the additional opportunity to visit museum collections and colleagues who specialize in the conservation of contemporary art in both Copenhagen, Malmo and Stockholm. While Ingrid was in Copenhagen, she also met with fellow international colleagues who are involved, as is she, in the Getty's APPEAR Project to create an international database on ancient Egyptian Fayum portraits which included examining 8 more portraits located in Copenhagen museums. Ingrid was also invited to visit the Royal Danish Conservation School which was a special opportunity. In Stockholm, Ingrid was able to visit the VASA Museum and plans to incorporate this unique conservation/collections care preservation effort, of this 333 year old wooden ship, into her course this spring. She reports that there is nothing like visiting our international museum colleagues, there is so much to learn and share!
