ANAGPIC was founded in May, 1984 by the following organizations:
- Buffalo State College, State University of New York, Art Conservation Department;
- Harvard University Art Museums, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies;
- New York University, Conservation Center, Institute of Fine Arts;
- Queen’s University, Art Conservation Program;
- Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation;
- The University of Texas at Austin, School of Information, Kilgarlin Center for Preservation of the Cultural Record
The general purpose of ANAGPIC is to “help serve the need of the conservation field for well-trained professional conservators by aiding its member training programs to attain their educational objectives.”
Since its inception, ANAGPIC has held annual conferences to provide students from member programs the opportunity to present current research to their peers. One of the primary functions of this website is to present these conference papers so that conservation and preservation colleagues may benefit from them.
ANAGPIC, the Association of North American Graduate Programs in Conservation, works together to strengthen and advance graduate-level education and training in art and heritage conservation. ANAGPIC meets regularly to provide a venue for the presentation and exchange of graduate student work and research. Student papers and posters are updated regularly.
The ANAGPIC site contains the presentations and posters of students at the ANAGPIC conference since 2005. You may use the search tool to find papers by title or author name.
