The Applied Museum Studies program is very pleased to announce the
recipients of this year's community awards of achievement. Winners
were presented their awards at the Algonquin College Annual
Community Studies Awards Ceremony hosted at Algonquin College on May
27, 2009.

    Julia Nonkes, Erica Kastner and Maggie Case
    AMS Preservation Award

        Maggie, Erika and Julia completed a comprehensive series of
        conservation assessments and collections condition surveys
        for the City of Ottawa's Heritage Development unit.

        The intent of the project was to provide city planners with
        a clear indication of the state of preservation of cultural
        property for Billings Estate National Historic Site,
        Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, Gloucester Museum,
        Fairfields and the Archaeological Collections from Lebreton

        Over 1600 artifacts were assessed along with several storage
        facilities culminating in the creation of a Cultural Health
        Index of the City of Ottawa's Heritage Collections. This
        report, the first of its kind in the province of Ontario,
        will be used by city planners to direct the development of
        preservation procedures to ensure the long term care of
        Ottawa's unique cultural past.

        Maggie, Erika and Julia are truly deserving of this award
        and recognition, for assisting the Citizens of Ottawa in the
        conservation of their collective cultural past.

    Julia Loan
    Ottawa Art Gallery Conservation Award

        Julia Loan has been awarded the Ottawa Art Gallery's
        Conservation Award for her successful treatment of two works
        of art. The works, executed by Canadian contemporary artist
        Susan Feindel, entitled "Field Circuit" had suffered damaged
        as a result of poor packing for an overseas loan. Julia
        devised a treatment process that would allow for the safe
        removal of polyethylene sheeting that had fused to the
        surface of the works. The treatment process required the
        completion of comprehensive condition treatment reporting,
        photo-documentation, solubility testing, execution of the
        treatment and the design and fabrication of a custom
        storage/transportation crate.

    Andrew Boisvenue
    Ontario Museum Association Award

        Andrew was an active volunteer member of the OMA's steering
        committee for the 2008 OMA conference.

    Leah Batisse
    Historical Society of Ottawa Award

        Leah participated in the research and development of an
        online exhibit for the City of Ottawa Archives.
