Furniture study trip

The Wooden Artifacts Group (WAG) of the American Institute for
Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) is sponsoring a
furniture study trip to France in the spring of 2001 for a group of
mid-career conservators, curators, students, and furniture makers.
The 18-day itinerary will include visits to repositories of French
furniture from the 17th century to the modern age, including those
normally not open to the public.  Thanks to a grant from the Andrew
W. Mellon Foundation, $2,600 of the projected $3,750 cost (for
airfare, airport transfers, hotels, and ground transportation) will
be awarded to each participant.  Two qualifying conservation
graduate students will receive an additional $400. (Individuals will
be responsible for their own meals and incidental expenses.)  French
language fluency is desirable but not required.  Applications must
be received by September 29. For more information and an
application, contact:
