Lecture: Paper Conservator Dianna Clise

Senior Paper Conservator Dianna Clise joined the Midwest Art Conservation Center in 2007 after completing her Masters in Art Conservation with a specialization in works on paper from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Prior to pursuing her graduate degree, Ms. Clise worked at Etherington Conservation Center in Greensboro, NC. She holds a B.A. with Honours in anthropology and cultural studies from Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. She is Professional Associate (PA) Member of the American Institute for Conservation with a membership in the Book and Paper, and Photographic Materials Specialty Groups.

Clise’s lecture is presented in association with a 2018-20 Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) project grant with matched funds raised by the Friends of the UNI Permanent Art Collection and Gallery. This IMLS Museums for America Collection Stewardship grant made possible the full conservation treatments for 44 art objects from the UNI Permanent Art Collection. The selection of these particular works on paper, which constituted those with the highest conservation need, was determined through a 2015 IMLS funded item-specific conservation survey.

According to Darrell Taylor, the Gallery will also host a Virtual Open House event on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 4:00 p.m. in order to present these conserved works of art to our many constituents.

Among the works of art conserved are Boston Massacre by Larry Rivers, Balloons by Alexander Calder, Fancy Dress Ball by George Grosz, Boy with Cat by Mauricio Lasansky, Seed Time and Harvest by Grant Wood, Le Chandail Brode by Picasso, The Prisoners by Käthe Kollwitz, View of Amsterdam by Rembrandt, and an extraordinary gilded page from a 15th century Book of Hours.
