About the Presenter: 

Joanna Hurd, Mellon Paper Conservation Fellow, Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts

As a Paper Conservation Fellow, Joanna assesses condition and treatment needs, documents findings in reports, and treats a wide range of objects, including works of art on paper and archival materials.

Joanna spent five years exploring the different fields of conservation before specializing in paper conservation with a minor in photograph conservation in graduate school. She has since interned at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Weissman Preservation Center, and the American Philosophical Society. She is thrilled to return to the Center as a Fellow after an enriching experience as a summer intern. Joanna received an MS in Art Conservation from the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation and a BA in Art History from Boston University.
