College to Recognize Art Conservation Donors with Naming CeremonyPosted: September 9, 2015
Buffalo State will honor four individuals who have made significant contributions to its art conservation program with a naming dedication ceremony on Friday, September 18, at 5:30 p.m. in the lobby of Rockwell Hall.
The donors will be present along with Buffalo State President Katherine Conway-Turner and representatives from the Art Conservation Department, the School of Arts and Humanities, the Institutional Advancement Office, and the College Council.
“We are deeply grateful for these gifts that will enable us to continue to attract high-caliber students to our program,” said Patrick Ravines, associate professor and director of art conservation. “The gifts will go directly to fellowships to support future graduate students preparing for the important job of conservation.”
Founded in 1970, the art conservation program is one of the leading graduate programs of its kind in North America and accepts only 10 students a year. Program graduates can be found in the conservation labs of major institutions across the United States, including the Smithsonian Institute, the National Gallery of Art, the Library of Congress, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Plaques bearing the names of each donor will be presented at the ceremony.
