Monday’s Docent Meeting was an informative discussion with Constance Clement, Deputy Director of the Center. Cecie talked about the decade of research that went into informing the design, construction, and renovation of the Center’s landmark building, as well as the publication in 2011 of Louis Kahn and the Yale Center for British Art: A Conservation Plan by the Center in association with Yale University Press. Written by Peter Inskip and Stephen Gee, in association with Cecie, the book details the conservation plan and proposes a series of policies for the building’s maintenance to which we are now in the midst. Everybody was delighted to receive a copy of the book.
