EDAAC Call for Summer Fellowship Applications

The Engineering and Design for Art and Artifact Conservation Program will be announcing their call for fellowship applications soon. Please check back to learn about 2010’s collaborative fellowship.
The Engineering and Design for Art and Artifact Conservation (EDAAC) program is a multi-disciplinary intensive summer program for Rice undergraduates in arts/humanities and engineering/sciences. Students work closely with the Museum of Fine Arts Houston to develop custom solutions for pressing problems in the art world, specifically the preservation and storage of priceless antiquities to pieces of modern art. This program demonstrates a curricular and mindset shift at Rice University and in the community, one that acknowledges the contributions that disparate fields can make in projects with shared goals. Fittingly, this program is a collaborative project from the School of Engineering, School of Humanities, the Center for Civic Engagement and Rice Alliance.
