Minot State University Art Seminar: Amanda Watts
April 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Dr. Amanda Watts, Objects Conservator for Archaeology and Museums and Minot State Lecturer, will be presenting to Art Seminar students at Minot State University’s Aleshire Theater at 12:00 pm on April 1.
From Minot, Watts began her career in archaeology on excavations in North Dakota on the Lewis and Clark Trail over 20 years ago. Her work on objects led to specialism in object conservation – a material science approach to understanding and caring for museum collections. Conservation work at museums such as the Museum of London, Chedworth Roman Villa, Poe Museum of Richmond, and the National Museum of Afghanistan in Kabul balance the field archaeology expeditions, where she has conserved objects on-site in the UK, USA, Turkey, Afghanistan, Rapa Nui, and Egypt.
Arts Seminar presentations offer students and the public the opportunity to learn about the work, lives and experiences of guest artists visiting Minot State University. This event is free and open to the public. We invite you to attend! Masks are not required, but individuals who are not fully vaccinated or deemed vulnerable are encouraged to continue to wear masks.
Aleshire Theater is located in Hartnett Hall on the Minot State University Campus. The presentation will also be streamed live on the Northwest Arts Center’s Facebook page.
This program is funded in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
