The reopening of the remodeled and greatly expanded Amon Carter
Museum in Fort Worth in October 2001 has been one of the great cul-
tural events in the state in the past year. The new spaces show off Amon
Carter's unparalleled collection of Frederic Remington and Charles M.
Russell paintings and sculpture in a way that forces you to see them anew,
if they are old friends, and to stand in awe if it is a first viewing, and per-
mit the museum staff to present one of the most comprehensive surveys
of American art in any museum. Now, with these rich collections on con-
stant view, and with temporary exhibitions gracing the rest of the Carter's
handsome space, Director Rick Stewart has turned his attention to filling
out the staff in new ways. Recently acquired grant funds, for example,
have permitted the museum to employ for the first time a photographic
conservator, Sylvie P6nichon, who brings extensive experience to bear on
the museum's huge photographic collection. Penichon has worked in nu-
merous institutions in the United States and abroad, and she has re-
searched and published extensively on the conservation and preservation
of photographic materials. She will operate the Carter's new photograph
and paper conservation laboratory. In her new position, P6nichon will
provide examination, treatment and research of photographs in the
Carter's permanent collection as well as works on loan. For more infor-
mation about the Carter's conservation laboratory, please call Public Re-
lations Coordinator Carol Noel at 817/738-1933 or e-mail carol.noel@

alistic style. It is housed in a beautiful example of the work of San Antonio
architect O'Neil Ford, in a buildings that features his characteristic heavy
timbers and rugged retaining walls of stacked limestone along with the
vaulted, brick-lined ceiling in the entrance hall.
Duty, a Wichita Falls native, began his museum career at the Amon
Carter Museum in Fort Worth during the 197os and occupied the di-
