Conservation isn’t always glamorous, but sometimes it glows! My name is Courtney Von Stein, and I am a member of the WUDPAC class of 2014. I specialize in objects conservation, and this summer I am working under conservator Suzanne Hargrove at the Toledo Museum of Art in Toledo, Ohio. Click here to read more about the glowing glass object that I’ve been working with!

Courtney Von Stein is entering her second year of studies in the WUDPAC program, where she is majoring in objects conservation. Courtney graduated from Emory University in 2011 with a degree in chemistry. 

Winterthur is celebrating 60 years of graduate programs in art conservation and material culture studies in the current exhibition A Lasting Legacy: Sixty Years of Winterthur Graduate Programs, on view through June 16, 2013.
