Mission San Juan Capistrano

Mission San Juan Capistrano's new Art Guild held its first meeting on June 17 in the Mission's Soldiers Barracks.

The purpose of this first meeting was to engage those who have supported previous art conservation projects, and discuss options about art that is in the Mission’s collection.

The meeting featured the Mission's Museum Registrar Jennifer Ring presenting the results of the Balboa Art Conservation Center’s recent assessment of the Mission's current collection, a project that was made possible by a grant from the California Missions Foundation. Ring discussed some of the paintings, showing the decay and the work that will be necessary to conserve them.

Also on display were previously conserved paintings with "before and after" posters.

Those in attendance for the meeting included Jim Swinden of Irvine Museum, Madeline Swinden, a Mission Preservation Foundation Board member, Deanna and Robert Saint-Aubin, Jan and Warren Siegel, and Mozelle Sukut.

The meeting concluded with a Q&A with Ring and Mission Executive Director Mechelle Lawrence Adams, who answered questions and explained how members can get involved.
