Posted: April 1, 2014

Frans Francken (1581-1642)

The Department of Art and Design is excited to announce another Windgate Workshop, Art Conversation with Joe Fronek.

Joe Fronek is the Head of Paintings Conservation at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). He will be leading a workshop using paintings in the APU School of Theology by Flemish artist Frans Francken (1581-1642).

Joe will demonstrate and allow students to clean, observe using magnifying lenses and UV lighting, and guide students on other ways of "seeing" the paintings. This workshop presents art restoration as a career option and shows how the restorer and the art historian work together when approaching the repair and/or restoration/cleaning of art.


All supplies and a free lunch will be provided!


This workshop is on Tuesday, April 11, 2014 from 1:00 - 4:00pm in DUKE 305 in the Duke Academic Complex on West Campus.
