About: Katrina Posner

I'm an assistant conservator in the Decorative Arts and Sculpture Conservation lab at the J. Paul Getty Museum. While I work on the Getty's collections both in and out-of-doors, in the summer I concentrate on the maintenance of the outdoor sculpture collection. My colleagues and I have written a publication about the preparation and installation of this collection. In summer 2012 I will be working on the installation of an indoor exhibition, Messerschmidt and Modernity.
