CREate Festival 2015

Alba Art Conservation has been awarded an Entrepreneur Fellowship to exhibit in the Innovation Salon at Pittsburgh's CREate Fest 2015!  I will be discussing how art and science overlap in the field of conservation and will showcase a few of my ongoing treatments.  I am looking forward to a great outreach opportunity and to meet other local entrepreneurs. 

CREate Fest brings together artists, artistic folk, creatives, and techies to learn from each other and show how our fields overlap. 

You can check out their goals and mission on their website:

"MISSION   To foster, connect and sustain emergent intersections of creativity and industry.

PURPOSE  To serve as a collaborative hub that ignites creativity and innovation, enhances interconnectivity and provides opportunity for creative, cultural transformation. The network serves seven key clusters: Design, Communications, Fine Arts, Entertainment, Software & Hardware, Data Science and Creative Industry Support Services.

IDEate. INNOVate. INTEGRate:
Art + Technology Explorations


Just in time for memorial day! I had the great pleasure to be able to tour one of the last intact GAR posts discovered and restored at the Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall. GAR posts were used by local civil war veterans to hold meetings, plan community events, and store relics. Come see the post yourself any Saturday!
