"During clean-up of the building, there were quite a few experts in conservation helping, and it was so fascinating to see how things should be properly handled."

Fellowship Overview

Fellowship Name
Small Fellow in Museum Studies

Site
African American Historical Museum and Cultural Center of Iowa

Cedar Rapids, IA

Aims of the Fellowship
My original project was to research and write a changing exhibit on Haitian Vodou Flags, but that plan changed as soon as the flood hit. My job was to clean the artifacts after they came out of the building.  I received a crash course in artifact cleaning and I was off to work.
