Franklin D. Murphy Lecture Series From Berlin to Baghdad: When Art Historians Go to War
5:30 – 6:30 PM / Spencer Museum of Art, 309 Auditorium
KU alumna Corine Wegener's work in cultural heritage protection has taken her into harrowing armed conflicts leading to heroic recovery efforts. She returns to KU to receive the History of Art Department’s 2014 Franklin D. Murphy Distinguished Alumni Award and to discuss her experiences in the military and in museums during times of crisis. A Major in the U.S. Army Reserve, Wegener was called to active duty from her work as an assistant curator at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts following the 2003 looting of the Iraq National Museum. Informed by the World War II Monuments Men and her graduate studies at KU, Wegener served as an Arts, Monuments, and Archives Officer in Baghdad, operating as the military liaison to the Iraqi Ministry of Culture and assisting museum staff in recovery and reconstruction efforts. As founder of the US Committee of the Blue Shield, a nonprofit organization committed to protecting cultural property during armed conflict, and in her current role as Preservation Specialist for Cultural Heritage at the Smithsonian Institution, Wegener works with museum staff in countries dealing with contemporary crises, and the destruction of cultural heritage, from Egypt to Libya, Mali, Syria, and Haiti.
