Book Talk: Dwell Time with Author Rosa LowingerForum Members Only
Join Preservation Leadership Forum for a member’s only book talk featuring author Rosa Lowinger in conversation with Elizabeth Blasius, architectural historian, writer, and co-founder of Preservation Futures.
Lowinger is a Cuban-born American materials conservator specializing in historic architecture and twentieth century art. A Masters-level graduate of the Conservation Program at NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts, Lowinger is also a Fellow of American Institute for Conservation, the Association for Preservation Technology, and the American Academy in Rome, where she served as the 2008-09 Rome Prize Fellow in Conservation, conducting groundbreaking research on the relationship between vandalism to public space, graffiti, and iconoclasm.
In Rosa Lowinger’s new memoir, Dwell Time: A Memoir of Art, Exile, and Repair she interweaves the materials and science of her work in conservation with the story of her Jewish Cuban family and their state of double exile: from Eastern Europe in the 1920s and then from Cuba in early 1961.
You can purchase a copy of the book from Books and Books an independent bookstore in Coral Gables, Florida. Use the Code: ROSA10 for a 10% discount.
