article by Kevin Brown on Clements Library Conservator Julie Fremuth. Julie is the featured artist in this year's Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, and her work will appear on the fair's official t-shirts and posters.
At the Clements Library, Julie's preservation skills and artistic sensibility are on display in the two current exhibits, The Games We Played and Mapping the Revolution. Julie creates custom mounts for every item on display and works with the curators to develop aesthetically pleasing layouts for each case.
