Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: New dimensions in treating our collections Our textile conservator has been preparing a colorful 1950s silk jumpsuit by Tina Leser for photography. Unfortunately two of the original wildly floral gold-plated buttons were missing. Our friends at Ethicon Endo-Surgery in Blue Ash have come to the rescue. They borrowed one of the buttons, performed a digital 3-d scan of it and printed hard-plastic copies from the scan with their highest quality 3-d printer. We are very happy with the results (below). Back in Textiles Conservation the copies will be gilded and painted, the replacements will be attached to the jumpsuit, and the spares will be carefully stowed away. A big thank you to Mark Ransick and all the team at Ethicon! 2 hour ago via Facebook

Teen Volunteers

Interested in volunteering at the Art Museum or have school-based community service requirements? High school volunteers are needed to assist with our Family First Saturdays program, as well as certain special events. Family First Saturdays is held on the first Saturday of the month, September through May, from 1 – 4 p.m. and volunteers are asked to participate from 12:45 – 4:15 p.m. Common responsibilities include preparing art projects, assisting young visitors with art making, greeting visitors, and other duties as needed. Volunteers work in collaboration with Art Museum staff in a supervised environment.

 

Requirements
Volunteers must be outgoing, mature, have a passion for art and helping their community, and work well with visitors of all ages. No previous art history or studio experience is required. Volunteers must arrange their own transportation.

 

Volunteer requests are sent via email approximately three weeks prior to each event. Volunteer spots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, though staff does make every effort to include all interested volunteers. For more information or to be added to the volunteer list, contact Russell Ihrig at (513) 639.2334 or [email protected]
