The Art of the Weissman Center
From July 20 through August 15, the Harvard community enjoyed a unique opportunity to see original works of art created by members of the conservation staff in the Weissman Preservation Center. According to Thea Burns, Helen H. Glaser Conservator in the College Library, the exhibit, held in the Holyoke Center Arcade, showcased "the artistic pursuits, both professional and amateur, which the conservation staff of the Weissman Preservation Center, Harvard University Library, engage in outside of Harvard. In some cases there is a symbiotic relationship between the art we create and the rare library materials we see and treat every day in the conservation lab."
