In the News: Clements Library Conservator Julie Fremuth

The University Record Online for the week of July 11, 2011, includes an 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. 

You can read more about Julie Fremuth's work at the Clements Library in her article, "Conserving Our Collections," in the latest issue of The Quarto (Spring-Summer 2011). Her work as a book artist has recently been featured in the book Masters: Book Arts: Major Works by Leading Artists.
