2017 MRCG Symposium

The 2017 MRCG Symposium will be held October 13-15, 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio, with our sessions hosted by the Cincinnati Art Museum.  We have reserved a block of hotel rooms for conference attendees at the nearby SpringHill Suites Cincinnati Midtown.

We are looking for approximately ten 20-minute presentations.  A call for papers will be announced soon, but if you already have an idea for a talk, please let us know now!  Pre-program interns and students are encouraged to participate.  Please send the title of your talk, a brief abstract (maximum 300 words), your name, contact information and associated institution to Cecile Mear at cecile.mear@cincyart.org or Betsy Allaire at afaconservation@yahoo.com.

Registration fees remain the same as last year.  The earlier you register, the lower your cost will be. MRCG will again be offering up to $2,000 for the Emerging Professionals Scholarship.

About Our Hosts

The Cincinnati Art Museum is one of the oldest art museums in the United States. Founded in 1881, it was the first purpose-built art museum west of the Alleghenies. Its collection of over 67,000 works spanning 6,000 years of human history make it one of the most comprehensive collections in the Midwest. (From Wikipedia.)
