The Conservation Center is going to celebrate its 30 Year Anniversary this August. Look forward to a special newsletter, taking a retrospective look at The Conservation Center.
To kick off the new year, we held an art competition amongst our talented staff this January. The only parameter was to incorporate the theme of conservation, whether comical or serious. We are proud to share the winning entry from Art Handler Alfredo Garcia!
The Conservation Center is pleased to announce the addition of Aaron Baker to our executive team as Vice President of Client Development. Before joining The Center, Baker served as Curator and Director of Business Development for Playboy Enterprises, Inc.
Now that our company move is completed, the administrative staff at The Center has been busy taking care of all the important details to ensure our business continues to run smoothly. Fortunately, we have moved into a spacious environment where we can better coordinate our daily tasks and client pick up and drop offs.
One of the most exciting new additions in our current location is our full-floor conservation laboratory. Designed by Studio Gang Architects, the layout of the space is arranged to enhance our operations; the high ceilings, terrazzo floors, and larger windows that flood the space with natural light are all details that make up the calm and open studio environment.
Today’s Chicago Women Magazine commemorates Heather Becker, the CEO of The Conservation Center, as one of those women that have influenced not only the The City of Chicago but the nation as well.
Our CEO Heather Becker was recently quoted in an article about safeguarding your art assets, written by Gary Raphael, Senior Vice President of Risk Consulting for ACE Private Risk Services — for Private Wealth Magazine.
