Placement sought for Asian Cultural Council fellow

From: Kevin Daly <kdaly<-a>

The following is posted on behalf of Mary Kay Judy of the Asian
Cultural Council and Ms. Hisayo Nakai.  Ms. Judy is very interested
in ensuring that a placement is secured, as this particular award is
not usually offered to conservators.

Asian Cultural Council
Japanese Painting Conservation Fellowship
Placement Opportunity

This year, for the first time, the competitive Japan Fellowship was
awarded to a practicing Japanese oil painting conservator named Ms.
Hisayo Nakai. After receiving her conservation training in Japan,
she worked in the Netherlands and Belgium. She is currently a staff
conservator at the Nara National Museum in Japan.


Her fellowship provides full funding for a six-month residency in
the United States while working at an accredited museum or
institution.  Her tentative arrival date in the United States would
be Spring 2009.

We would like to assist her with placement and are seeking
expressions of interest from museum conservation departments. Please
contact me for more information on the program and Ms. Nakai's
experience and references.

The Asian Cultural Council (ACC) is a foundation supporting cultural
exchange in the visual and performing arts between the United States
and Asia with offices in New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Taipei. The
ACC was founded in 1963 by John D. Rockefeller III. Fellowships to
individuals constitute the central feature of the ACC's grant
program, the emphasis being on awards to artists, scholars and
specialists from Asia for research, study and creative work in the
United States.  For more information, please see
