From: Pat Griffin <griffin>
Date: Tuesday, July 31, 2001
In an effort to share information and increase communication among
our diverse AIC membership, the Objects Specialty Group and the
Textile Specialty Group are planning a joint session at the 2002
annual meeting in Miami, Florida.  Christine Giuntini (TSG Chair)
and Patricia Griffin (OSG Program Chair) are the coordinators.  The
theme of this session has been tentatively titled "Composite
artifacts with textile/object components". Possible subjects the
combined groups would be interested in, include, but are not limited
to--ethnographic items such as masquerade costumes, personal
shrines/religious artifacts, costume accessories (hats, shoes, belts
etc.), 20th century assemblages (fine and/or outsider art), folk
art, vehicles, architectural elements, etc. The presentation/paper
can include such things as scientific/historic research, examination
and/or treatment of the above mentioned objects.
