Julianna Ly was a participant in the Delaware Public Humanities Institute in 2019. She graduated in August 2020 from the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation specializing in paintings conservation and spent her final internship year as the Fulbright/American Friends of the Mauritshuis intern at the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in Den Haag, Netherlands. She is now the Assistant Conservator of Paintings at the Western Center for the Conservation of Fine Arts (WCCFA) in Denver, Colorado where she examines and treats paintings for private clients, museums, and other institutions.
About her experience as a Delphi fellow, Julianna says: “DELPHI helped me develop effective ways to communicate the field of conservation in different public engagement formats. I felt fortunate to be equipped with ways to not only inform the public, but also excite them about our field. In doing so, I believe our field can communicate the importance of preserving our communal cultural heritage for generations to come.”
