ARCA Alum '09 Julia Brennan, a textile conservator, was one of the international consultants who helped to develop the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles in Thailand.
The institute focuses on preserving and reviving the Thai silk industry.
Here and here are two articles on the Queen's textile museum. Brennan trained the conservation staff, helped design and set up the conservation lab, and worked with the team to treat, prepare and install more than 150 textiles for the inaugural exhibitions.
The museum will open to the public on May 9th.
