Patricia Canfield Phillips '74 was recently named
by the College Art Association as the new executive editor of the international
art publication, Art Journal. In the past, she has written articles for
Artforum, Sculpture and Art News magazines and has also published several
books on art and culture.
"Patty Canfield Phillips has made important contributions to the
intellectual life of the Martin Art Gallery as an alumna of the college.
We are very proud of her and happy to hear of her new and prestigious
position as editor of Art Journal as her work in our field has been consistently
impressive," says Dr. Lori Verderame of the Martin Art Gallery.
In 1997, Canfield Phillips was invited back to campus to co-curate the
art exhibition, "di Suvero and Serra Sculpture" with Verderame.

Sending out an SOS...
This spring the Martin Art Gallery was awarded
a conservation grant from SOS! Save Outdoor Sculpture, which is a division
of the National Heritage of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington,
D.C. The funds will be used to review and conserve Mark di Suvero's "Victor's
Lament" on the College's main campus lawn.
