Why no mention of the MAC program?
Sarah Confer, MAC'06, of Kemble, ON, asks why there was no mention of the MAC program in recent article.
Re: “To save a masterpiece”. Issue #1, 2011
I read the article on the restoration of the Ghent Altarpiece with great interest. It’s an incredible work of art and a landmark in the history of art. How wonderful for a Queen’s professor to be able to participate.
However, I was shocked and saddened that during a discussion of such an incredible conservation project, the writer would neglect to mention that Queen’s University is the home of one of the most esteemed schools of conservation theory and practice in Canada. In fact, it is the country’s only Art Conservation Master’s program (Master of Conservation, or MAC), and one of only four masters programs in all of North America.
The Review did a real disservice to Queen's by omitting such a unique and laudable element of the University.
