Here’s the latest news from Linda Norris, Anne Ackerson, Carolyn Macuga, Gwen Spicer and Marianne Bez.

Linda’s continued to get to know the amazing members of the Coalition of Sites of Conscience: a week’s worth of Skype conversations might include Morocco, Argentina, the UK, Russia and Nepal. She’ll be meeting European Coalition members at their upcoming regional meeting at Terezin, in the Czech Republic in November.

Gwen
will be attending NAVA’s annual meeting this weekend, after having been at GHHN’s annual meeting. She has just received and is reading conservator, Gaelle Douvre’ thesis (2017), ‘L’accrochage libre des oeuvres contemporaines sur papier’ (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de La Cambre,) It is wonderful to see others research on the use of magnets with all types of artwork. Her work and others are only aiding in all of our understanding in how magnets can be used.

Anne is taking a bit of time off, cruising the Seine and visiting museums in Paris and Normandy. She’s looking forward to seeing Marianne for dinner in Paris one night. It seems there might be a couple of book projects about leadership on the horizon, including a revision of the best-selling Leadership Matters.

Marianne completed a week-long experience in Ghana to participate in the West Africa Project Fair of Rotary International. While there she toured schools, observed a childhood vaccination clinic, toured historic sites and met many wonderful people.

Carolyn is heading to Chicago this weekend to sample some of Context’s new architecture walking tours, visit the Driehaus Museum for the first time, and spend some quality time with the collections at AIC.
