Budget cutbacks at Indianapolis Museum of Art

From: Michele Marincola <mm71<-at->

I would like to second John Campbell's post (Conservation DistList
Instance: 26:42 Wednesday, March 20, 2013) lamenting the cutbacks to
staff at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

It is worth mentioning that the Indianapolis Museum of Art
conservators are also superb mentors for students at all levels,
from pre-program to 3rd and 4th year interns. All of us have
experienced how critical a good internship is to our education.  The
impending layoffs of staff from conservation at the IMA will
therefore not only damage a highly respected department and upend
the lives of yet more museum employees, it will also affect the
young conservators and would-be conservators who might otherwise
have trained at the museum.
