Lucie’s Retirement Party
January 27, 3 PM
Lucie Linhart is retiring! The Art Gallery staff and the faculty, students and staff in the Faculty of Fine Arts are going to miss Lucie. She started at the U of L as the Slide Librarian in 1983, moved into a double job continuing as the Slide Librarian part-time and the Registrar in the Art Gallery from 1986 – 1990, and then became a full-time Registrar with the Art Gallery from 1990 to 2011. Lucie is the most valuable resource for the U of L’s significant Art Collection. She is the person who has handled all of the 14,000 objects in the collection. Lucie is the one who checks the condition of each and every art work, assigns them acquisition numbers, and tracks all their information. She also worked with visiting artists to arrange the shipment and other details for bringing in their artwork; she communicated with Registrars across Canada and internationally to lend work from the collection; and she helped students access works for study. Above all these duties, Lucie has also been happy to lend a hand with her language skills, her eagle-eye for proof reading texts, pitching in during exhibition installations, and spreading good cheer while tending bar at receptions. We hope Lucie will come back to visit often.
Please join us on January 27 at 3 PM in the Main Gallery for a party at the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery to celebrate the retirement of Lucie Linhart.
