**Registrars and Collections Specialists Mentoring Program**
Have you been wondering whether the RCS Mentoring Program would benefit
you?  Jennifer Reifsneider, Registrar at the Missoula Art Museum, shares
her experience with the program:

The ARCS mentorship program has been a valuable resource for me. In
Montana, colleagues are far-flung and professional development
opportunities are rare. It’s easy to be pulled in too many directions, but
after just a couple of conversations with my mentor, I felt empowered to
reset my focus on the collection. Danielle’s perspectives helped me to
better organize my workload, identify solutions to nagging problems, and
make my co-workers more aware of best practices. I recommend the program to
anyone looking for fresh connections and inspiration.

**Meet Your ARCS Board Members**
This month we would like to introduce you to Board Member Jean Gilmore.

“I retired from the Brandywine River Museum in late 2013, after 31+ years
as Museum Registrar.  Over those decades I accessioned thousands of works
of art; made loan, transportation, insurance, and photography arrangements
for works included in hundreds of exhibitions; initiated and maintained a
computerized database of collections and loans; supervised the accessioning
and cataloguing of thousands of objects in two historic artist studios and
a historic house; participated in two building expansion projects; and had
the once-in-a-lifetime experience of couriering an exhibition to and from
nine locations around the world, including to Leningrad and Moscow when
they were still part of the Soviet Union.  With my good friend and partner,
Rebecca Buck, I co-edited the 4th and 5th editions of Museum Registration
Methods and co-authored On the Road Again and Collection Conundrums.

Since retirement, I have continued work in registration through Buck &
Gilmore, LLC, our museum consulting business, and through my work with
ARCS.  I am a Founding Board Member of ARCS and served two terms as
vice-president.  I have been chair of the Governance Committee since 2015
and contributed to the work of other committees, such as Editorial Review
and Website.  My service on the ARCS Board will end in June 2019.  While I
will continue to support ARCS and promote the profession of Registrar, I
expect to have a bit more time to pursue my other passions: knitting,
playing with my two dogs and one cat, attending opera and theater
performances, learning Italian, and writing poetry.  Oh yes, and enjoying
my husband!

**Meet Your ARCS Board Member**
This week we would like to introduce you to Board member John Robinette.

I attended the University of Texas at Austin and received a degree in art
history with a minor in business.  I spent 3 years at the Blanton Museum of
Art as a researcher in the Latin American department as well as an art
handler with the installation crew. I later spent time vagabonding around
the world in a band whilst installing artwork in galleries and residences
throughout New York. When it came time to put down my drumsticks, I settled
into my current position at the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros in
2010. As the Manager of Storage and Installation, I oversee all storage
facilities and locales where the family maintain their collection and
handle most of the logistics for their extensive international loan
program. Besides my work on the ARCS Board, I also head the Marketing
Committee and co-host the monthly #ARCSchat on Twitter.


**Mentorship Program**
The RCS Mentoring Program (a joint collaboration between ARCS and the
Collections Stewardship professional network of AAM) is accepting
applications for both Mentors and Mentees to be matched in Summer 2018 for
a 6 month time period.  The mentoring relationship is a mutually rewarding
experience that offer opportunities for professional growth and development
throughout all career stages.  For more information, please go to

[MCN-L] ARCS Update Vol 3 Issue 6 Meet Your ARCS Board Members & European Registrars Conference Announcement

2018-03-12 Thread ARCS ARCS
**Meet Your ARCS Board Members**
This month we would like to introduce you to Board Member Jenny Wilson.

I have worked in museums for over 25 years and most of my career has
focused on the logistics of packing and shipping artworks and exhibitions.
 I originally wanted a job where I could travel a lot and studied
archaeology.  Throughout my studies and even beginning in high school, I
worked or volunteered in museums.  Then realized I could get a degree in
museum studies.  I was fortunate to get my first job at the University of
Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, starting as an intern
and eventually becoming coordinator for the travelling exhibitions program
and overseeing the logistics of the exhibitions that toured from the
collection.  So yes, I did get to travel lots!

My love of the outdoors called me to the West Coast and I took the job of
Registrar of Exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2002.  Now I work
on all the logistics of the incoming loans for a very busy exhibition
schedule and oversee the logistics of the touring exhibitions we lend.  So
I only travel occasionally, but it is still one of my favourite parts of
the job.  Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with many
contemporary artists and have gained much experience in shipping artwork of
all shapes and sizes via air, ocean and ground.

**European Registrars Conference Announcement**
The European Registrars Conference 2018 has officially gone live! Bringing
together registrars, collection and exhibition managers, and international
colleagues to exchange ideas and knowledge from across the sector, the key
themes for this year’s programme are Evolve, Refresh and Collaborate.
Lectures and conference sessions will reflect each of these areas of our
work.

ERC 2018 provides the perfect central meeting point to network with
colleagues while taking in the city's outstanding landmark museums and
galleries. With a vibrant programme promised, save the date for this
fantastic conference: 17 - 19 November 2018 at the QEII Centre in
Westminster, London. For more information and to register, please visit
their website-http://www.erc2018.org/

**Meet Your ARCS Board Members**
We’re pleased to start a new feature in our updates, introducing you to
ARCS Board members.  This month we would like to introduce you to Board
Member Jacqueline Cabrera.

I have been a registrar for over 25 years. After all this time I cannot
imagine having pursued any other career. As a registrar I have had the
opportunity to work on many interesting projects, from collection moves to
building renovations, collection rehousing projects and exhibitions. These
projects have introduced me to museum colleagues from all over the world,
many of whom I still keep in touch with on a personal level even after our
projects have concluded. I’ve traveled to many beautiful parts of the world
such as Egypt, Tunisia, and Greece just to name a few. I think the greatest
opportunity my career has allowed me is the ability to contribute to the
the creation of ARCS. I look forward to continue contributing to our
profession for many years to come and to keep traveling around the world
meeting many more museum colleagues.

**ARCS Bylaw Changes**
The ARCS board has updated our bylaws, creating the Treasurer Designate
position to allow for a smoother transition of the Treasurer position.
Michele Leopold is ARCS’ first Treasurer Designate and will become
treasurer at the June board meeting.  Updated bylaws can be found here-
https://www.arcsinfo.org/about/association-bylaws

**#ARCSChat March 6th @ 8pm EST**
In continuation last month’s discussions (https://twitter.com/i/
moments/962001358542069760) addressing the lack of diversity in the
collections management field, our next #ARCSChat will investigate gender
diversity as well as look at how we can reach out to underrepresented
communities with education and job opportunities. Again, we aim to empower
collections management communities to do what they can to address the
problem and to lobby institutional leadership for the resources to create a
more diverse staff.

To add another point of view to the conversation, This chat will be
co-moderated by Claire Kovacs, the director of the Augustana Teaching
Museum of Art at Augustana College and co-host of The Gallery Gap Podcast
@TheGalleryGap on NPR.

"I am the Assistant Director for Collections Management at The National
WWII Museum in New Orleans, LA. I have been at the museum for 10 years and
have seen us go through a tremendous amount of growth. We recently more
than doubled our artifact storage area which has allowed us to take a fresh
look at our storage practices. We are embarking on several re-housing and
inventory projects as part of our move out, and then back in, to our
storage areas."

**Learning Opportunities with the Conservation Center for Art and Historic
Artifacts**
The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts is pleased to offer
two 2-day workshops addressing the continually evolving challenges of
caring for modern and contemporary collections. The 20th and 21st centuries
presented a vast array of new materials which have left collections staff
in uncharted territory as they address unprecedented preservation problems.
Colors change and fade, structures lose their integrity, and material
components become obsolete. Libraries, museums, archives, and other
collecting institutions must understand the long-term preservation needs of
these items in order to determine appropriate priorities for conservation,
storage, exhibition, documentation, and digitization. These two-day
conferences will explore ways to anticipate, plan for, and address
preservation concerns in modern and contemporary collections.  This program
is intended for collections care staff responsible for modern and
contemporary materials in museums, libraries, and archives.  More
information can be found here-http://conta.cc/2GRuHly

[MCN-L] ARCS Update Vol 3 Issue 2 Meet Your ARCS Board Members, Board Election Alert, & #ARCSConf 2017 Stipend Recipient Reviews

2018-01-15 Thread ARCS ARCS
**Meet Your ARCS Board Members**
We’re pleased to start a new feature in our updates, introducing you to
ARCS Board members.  This month we start with Founding Board Member Andrea
Wood.

“I've been a registrar for 25 years. As an art history major at Edinboro
University, I distinctly remember the professor teaching a Museum & Gallery
Management course that said "The registrar is the most important position
in a museum." And, as he explained what this position was responsible for
and why, I knew that was what I wanted to be. Who wouldn't want to be the
most important in their chosen field?

Two events in my career stand out as particularly defining moments for me.
The first, and undoubtedly the most significant, was my boss dying on my
first ever courier trip. It was essentially a baptism by fire... everything
you need to master in an international round-the-world, month long courier
trip, manifesting itself as literal worst-case-scenarios. It made me a
stronger person, and plunged me into another level of understanding of what
this career entails. I usually end up retelling the story over drinks at
ARCS conferences, as my friends well know.

The second, and much less dramatic, was a two and a half year US State
Department tour with a Warhol exhibition throughout post-Soviet countries
at the turn of the millennium. Bringing original art to countries that had
never seen a 'contemporary' exhibition like that was significant to
understand the big picture of why I do what I do. It was an unbelievably
stressful and complicated tour in every sense, but thinking about how that
show might impact the creative output of a previously sheltered region is
absolutely mind-blowing to me.

This career has unlimited daily challenges, but the rewards are, in my
experience, well worth it.”

**ARCS Board Election Alert**
A call will be sent in the next week for candidates to fill an opening on
the ARCS Board of Directors. Please think about the competent, involved,
committed registrars and collections specialists of your acquaintance who
would make a good addition to the board and be prepared to respond to the
call when it arrives. Watch your email inbox!

**#ARCSchat Tonight!**

Preparing for disasters haunts the minds of many registrars and collections
specialists these days in light of the recent hurricanes that struck
Houston, Florida, and the Caribbean in addition to the two catastrophic
earthquakes in Mexico. Chakira Santiago, Chief Registrar at the Museum of
History, Anthropology, and Art at the Río Piedras campus of the University
of Puerto Rico (@chatere) will join us tonight at 8 pm EST to discuss
disaster preparedness and share her experiences managing her collection
through Hurricane Maria. Plan to come away with actionable advice on how to
galvanize your collections' safety in the face of catastrophe.

[MCN-L] ARCS Update Vol 2 Issue 12 Mexico Seminar #TerritoriosInexplorado Recap, #ARCSConf 2017 Reminders, & WMA Request for Proposals

2017-10-23 Thread ARCS ARCS
**Mexico Seminar #TerritoriosInexplorado Recap**
On October 9 – 10th, ARCS and the National Institute of Fine Art (INBA) of
Mexico hosted Territorios Inexplorados (Unexplored Territories), the first
seminar for registrars and collections specialists in Latin America at the
National Museum of Art in Mexico City. INBA oversees cultural programming
in all areas of the arts including 11 museums throughout Mexico. With over
100 attendees and 20 speakers, the seminar encompassed a wide array of
themes from social media, cataloging new media and contemporary art, to
documenting cultural patrimony.

The head of INBA, Lydia Camacho, officially inaugurated the event and the
director of visual arts, Magdalena Zavala, oversaw the sessions each day.
>From ARCS, co-founder and president emeritus, Jacqueline Cabrera and new
board member John Thomas Robinette III represented the ARCS.

Despite the recent devastating earthquakes that struck the country
attendance remained high, demonstrating a strong desire for the
organization of this professional community in Mexico. Some speakers, in
their roles as conservators or registrars, had to immediately return after
their talk to their work restoring or inspecting public monuments and
collections damaged as a result of the natural disaster.  Still, others
spoke of their roles in mitigating the effects of the earthquake on their
institutions.

The seminar ended with ARCS and INBA committed to working together again in
the future to further galvanize the professional museum community in the
country.

[MCN-L] ARCS Update Vol 2 Issue 15 Message from the President, Position Statement, & #ARCSChat Summer Hiatus

2017-07-17 Thread ARCS ARCS
**Message from the President**
I am very humbled to serve as the new president of ARCS, and I am excited
about continuing the great work we have started.
Already we have many successes to celebrate:
-Our conferences - Chicago in 2013, and New Orleans in 2015 - featured
in-depth sessions and networking opportunities.
-Two workshops on the care of photography in 2016 and 2017, and our first
workshop in 2014 with PACCIN tackled packing and crating.
-This last year we have worked with Connecting to Collections Care to
co-host webinars on Legal and Ethical Issues and Deaccessioning.
-We have partnered with the Collections Stewardship Professional Network of
the American Alliance of Museum since 2016 to create a joint mentorship
program.
-We continue to host networking socials around the world.
At five years old we are still a young organization, and we will continue
to work on building recognition for our field, and providing rich
professional development opportunities and resources to you.

And we need your support. Consider becoming an ARCS volunteer. By serving
with ARCS, you will have the opportunity to lead the sector and contribute
to learning opportunities that will benefit the entire field. To explore
volunteering with ARCS, click here: http://www.arcsinfo.org/
support-arcs/volunteers.

As we move forward together we welcome your ideas and suggestions - please
connect with us, or email at arcs4...@gmail.com.

And don’t forget to register for the ARCS biannual conference in Vancouver,
November 3-5, 2017. Only a limited number of spaces remain!

President, ARCS

**ARCS Position Statement**
Per the ARCS policy on position statements (on the ARCS website -> About ->
Bylaws-http://www.arcsinfo.org/about/association-bylaws) the ARCS Board
posted a draft letter (see under Forum -> Best Practices-
http://www.arcsinfo.org/forum/forum5-best-practices.aspx) for comment as to
whether or not we as an organization should sign on to the letter proposed
by AAM.

Recognizing the importance of the US federal programs and agencies that
help museums and the members of organizations such as ours to serve their
communities,  ARCS is happy to sign on to the AAM-drafted, field-wide
letter to Congress offering our support for the continued funding of those
vital agencies and programs. The full text of the letter can be found here:
http://www.aam-us.org/advocacy/take-action/advocacy-alerts/20170629

The letter is addressed to Majority Leader McConnell, Minority Leader
Schumer, Speaker Ryan, and Minority Leader Pelosi,

The crux of the letter is in the last line:
As you make decisions about the Fiscal Year 2018 budget, we urge you to
support agencies and programs that help museums make a difference in their
communities.

This letter will be sent to each senator with a copy to the AAM, signed by
ARCS.

**#ARCSChat Summer Hiatus**
#ARCSchat is the 1st Tuesday of every month, 8-9pm EST. However, we're
taking the summer off.  We'll be back in September with new themes. In the
meantime you can see the ARCS chats captured at our Storify link here-
https://storify.com/Arcs4All/

Note: at the bottom of each page of the ARCS website we have direct links
to all our social media accounts -- Storify, Twitter, Flickr, etc.

2016-10-10 Thread ARCS ARCS
 When ARCS was still a gleam in our eyes, we knew an internet presence was
an important part of growing our membership beyond the 12 of us. Thanks to
our outreach we’ve grown 100 fold, to well over 1200 members worldwide.

 We created a site map full of wishful thinking, wrote an RFP, and looked
at the websites of other not-for-profit groups affiliated with the arts,
sciences and history.  We sent our RFP and sitemap over the transom to 4
companies whose sites we rather liked and then carefully reviewed their
responses.  At the same time, an internal team looked for a designer to
create a brand for us – a logo, a color scheme, a typeface.

 Webitects (http://www.webitects.com/), a great group of people with
offices in Chicago, built our website.  During our fledging years they’ve
been responsive to our requests for additions and changes and made helpful
suggestions when we didn’t quite get the programming possibilities.  We
just learned that those who have been supporting us at Webitects are
joining a new company and they’re taking us with them – we thank Todd and
Christine and the rest of their team for the past, and look forward to
continue working with them under the new name of Spinutech (
https://www.spinutech.com/).

Between our first web presence and now, we have added buttons on the site
leading to our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/arcs4all/), to our
Linkedin page (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4554515), to Twitter (
https://twitter.com/arcs4all), to Storify (https://storify.com/Arcs4All/),
to Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/arcs4all/), to Flickr (
https://www.flickr.com/photos/arcs4all/). We can now register people for
conferences and workshops. We can take RSVPs for our Socials.  We’ve added
great videos in several categories, and we have a service for finding
contract assistance, “OnContract”. And if you haven’t checked out the Forum
– it’s becoming a great resource!  We even have a section devoted to
exchanges by and for Academic Registrars.

But it isn’t all website!  We knew we needed a social media manager,
someone who could really pull together the bells and whistles of outreach.
We were lucky to have hired Robin Bauer Kilgo.  Robin keeps things moving
forward - aggregating from news sources, adding content, creating reports,
and she has talents we haven’t even tapped yet!

And now, ARCS member Lisa Tillotson has been assembling content, editing,
scheduling, and otherwise preparing our bi-weekly ARCS Update which she
sends on to Robin who does her magic before sending it out to our members
and beyond.

Try out some of the links here and let us know what else you might like to
see by sending an e-mail to arcs4...@gmail.com.

[MCN-L] ARCS Update Issue 17 Socials

2016-09-12 Thread ARCS ARCS
ARCS Socials are a wonderful way to get to know other registrars and
collections specialists in your area.  They’re casual, fun, and you can win
a free one year ARCS membership!

Summer 2016 was another successful social season.  Philadelphia’s social
was sponsored by Atelier Art Services and saw Jobi Zink win the one year
membership. Detroit’s social was sponsored by Artpack Services Inc. &
A.I.R.  Davin Brainard of the Detroit Institute of Art Museum was the lucky
winner there.

July 31st’s social featured a day trip to ReInstitute (
http://thereinstitute.com) in New York’s Hudson Valley for Art Hudson/Farm
to Frame’s (
https://www.facebook.com/Art-HudsonFarm-to-Frame-1657557114499733/)
farm-to-table lunch, a visit to an exhibition, followed by an informal
lecture and Q and A session with the artists. Artist Joshua Rosenblatt is
also an art handler at the Whitney and he spoke about being both an art
handler and a practicing artist.

Besides sponsoring the event, Uovo Fine Art Storage also made a donation to
ARCS, and provided a raffle gift of $500 worth of services to lucky winner
Angela Liporaee, Registration Assistant at the Clark Art Institute. Winner
of the ARCS membership draw was Diane Hart of Williams College Museum of
Art.  Please visit Uovo’s blog for a very interesting post on the event:

[MCN-L] ARCS Update Issue 5 Join the #ARCSchat on Twitter

2016-03-28 Thread ARCS ARCS
Starting April 5th, ARCS will launch a new digital professional development
initiative called #ARCSchat.

Twitter-based, these real-time, monthly chats will focus on registrarial
and collections management topics and allow you and your fellow collection
specialists to engage in conversations about the topics that impact your
daily professional life.

Chats will take place the 1st Tuesday of each month, 8-9 pm EST.

To participate, simply log on to Twitter at the time of the chat and type
#ARCSchat into the search window.

The topic for our first chat is Registrars on Twitter. What do you share?
What don’t you share? How do you set an example for other staff?

Follow along as the conversation develops and chime in when you have an
opinion to share. Remember to use the hashtag #ARCSchat

After each chat, we will create a Storify post
(https://storify.com/Arcs4All)(an
annotated, edited archive of the tweets) to share widely so the
conversation lives on and remains a relevant resource for future reference.

Future topics will include Get to know your Registrar, So you want to be a
Registrar, Freelance Registrars, and Courier advice and experiences.  Topic
specialists will be involved in the chats - a great opportunity to ask
those questions and network!

Mark April 5th 8 pm EST in your calendar and join us at
https://twitter.com/arcs4all.

Questions? Email us at arcs4...@gmail.com with subject heading #ARCSchat.

*OnContract*

Are you a consultant, a contract registrar, or a freelance collection 
manager?  Participating in OnContract can be beneficial in securing a 
project job for you.

Anyone, whether an ARCS member or not, seeking a contractor in the field 
may search our database without charge.  This feature is similar to “find 
an appraiser” or “find a conservator” on the respective websites of those 
professions. 

ARCS is about to send out our first general announcement on all our social 
media resources (FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter, RC-AAM listserv, Museum-L, 
MCN-L, etc.) letting the broader field know that OnContract at ARCSinfo.org 
is an available resource.

If you would like to be listed (for a nominal annual fee) click the 
OnContract button on the top menu bar at ARCSinfo.org or if you have yet to 
renew your membership the 2016 calendar year, click the Membership Renewal 
button at the top right of your home page after you sign in.

You must upload a copy of your resume in PDF format in order to participate 
in this service.* 

If you have trouble signing up for OnContract, please let us know by email 
at arcs4...@gmail.com, using the subject line OnContract. If the directions 
aren’t clear, please let us know that, too.

*A resume is required because ARCS does not have an accreditation process 
for individuals who choose to offer their services.  The resume or CV 
provides the potential employer a means by which to match experience and 
qualifications with job requirements.
