Over a sip of some sort and in an atmosphere where no science background is needed, hear about some of the science behind the analysis and conservation of art and cultural heritage objects.

After earning a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture at Yale University, Casey Mallinckrodt went on to complete the UCLA Getty Master’s Program in the Conservation of Archeological and Ethnographic Materials.  Prior to landing in Richmond in 2015, Casey worked with the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Sante Fe, New Mexico and with the Museum of Fine Arts Boston where she held the Samuel H. Kress Fellow in Object Conservation.  Fortunately, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts scooped her up and she now serves as one of three of its object conservators.  Obviously an art and culture enthusiast, she’s also an avid runner and enjoys discovering new things in and around RVA.
