  • About

    Caroline (Carrie) Roberts joined the Kelsey Museum as a Conservator in 2014. She worked at the Kelsey as a Samuel H. Kress conservation fellow during the 2011/2012 academic year and held conservation fellowships at the J. Paul Getty Museum and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from 2012 to 2014 before returning to the Kelsey.

    She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Smith College and a Master of Science in Art Conservation from the University of Delaware. Her interests range from the conservation of stone objects and architecture to preventive conservation, and she specializes in the conservation of archaeological materials both in museum collections and in the field. Prior to joining the Kelsey she worked as a consulting conservator for the NYU Institute of Fine Arts Excavations at Selinunte, Italy, where she supervised conservation graduate students and conducted multispectral imaging research.

    With a strong interest in conservation education and outreach, and a longstanding commitment to professional service, she has lectured for the Getty’s VITA high school outreach program, as well as the University of Delaware’s conservation graduate program. She is a member of the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) and served as an officer for the Emerging Conservation Professionals Network of AIC from 2010 to 2012. She is currently working with AIC’s Education and Training Committee to promote the development of professional definitions and other educational material on the AIC Wiki.
