Creatively inclined Studio Arts major, class of 2014, seeking advice and guidance from alumni with careers in preservation, conservation and restoration. I was involved with an art replication project over the summer in Poland and had a fantastic experience. I would love to know if there are more opportunities like that out there and to learn more about what is involved in a preservation/restoration/conservation career. I’m also interested in working abroad, so I’m also eager to hear from people who have international experience in any artistic capacity (i.e. museum administration, residencies, curatorial experience, graduate school, full-time/part-time artist). Do you have any suggestions or tips on how to navigate the international art world? Could you share your professional timeline with me so I can better understand how arts careers can evolve? Your advice would be greatly appreciated!
